1. In a shallow dish, combine honey, vinegar, Harissa, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Transfer the salmon to the dish. Toss to coat the salmon fillets evenly. Transfer to a Zip-loc bag and let sit in the refrigerator covered for at least 1 hour, or up to 7 hours maximum, turning the fish once.

2. Remove and drain the salmon from the dish and keep the marinade for later. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Cook the salmon until one side of the fish is browned, about 2 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook until the other side browns, about 2 more minutes.

3. Reduce the heat to low and add the reserved marinade over the fish. Cover with a lid and cook until the fish is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.

4. Serve with lime wedges, yogurt sauce and sprinkled dill. This dish is best served with roasted vegetables, brown rice or bulgur.
