Place the oven rack in the middle position of your oven. Preheat oven to broil, medium/low heat.
Season salmon fillets with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Set aside.
In a medium bowl whisk together the honey, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, and water. Set aside.
Heat a large 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and butter and heat until the butter is melted. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
Add the prepared honey sauce into the pan, combine with the garlic, and bring to a gentle simmer.
Add the salmon fillets, skin-side-down, to the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes, basting the top of each fillet with sauce and pan juices.
Arrange the lemon slices around the salmon fillets and transfer the pan to your preheated oven. Broil for an additional 5-6 minutes, or until the edges are slightly charred and the salmon is fully cooked (145°F).
Drizzle with additional honey garlic sauce and fresh lemon juice, if desired. Serve with your favorite vegetables over rice.
