Honey Lemon Garlic Salmon

My fingers reek. 

My fingers smell like a garlicy - salmony love affair. Aside from having garlic fingers this salmon is deeeelish.

When I'm having a crazy busy week I love a super quick + easy dinner I can throw together. If I'm really really really busy I just go to chipotle ;) but thats another story... Alright so you can literally get this salmon together and eat it in an hour. So basically..
