Instructions to make Harissa Honey Glazed Salmon:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Prepare the Harissa Honey Glaze:
    • In a bowl, whisk together harissa paste, honey, olive oil, soy sauce, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, ground cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper. Adjust the seasonings to your liking.
  3. Prepare the Salmon:
    • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and black pepper.
  4. Coat with Harissa Honey Glaze:
    • Place the salmon fillets in a baking dish or on a lined baking sheet.
    • Brush the harissa honey glaze generously over the salmon fillets, ensuring they are well-coated.
  5. Bake in the Oven:

  6. Broil for Crispy Top (Optional):
    • If you prefer a slightly crispy top, you can switch to the broil setting for the last 1-2 minutes of cooking. Keep a close eye to avoid burning.
