Wholesome Honey Glazed Salmon

Honey Glazed Salmon

RECIPE:

Serving Size: 2 People

Ingredients:

Salmon

2 salmon filets

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1/4 teaspoon onion and garlic powder

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 lime zest

Brown Butter Lime Sauce

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 cloves garlic, pressed

1 tablespoon honey

Juice of 1 lime

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Make the browned butter lime sauce by melting butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat
  3. Cook, whisking constantly to avoid burning until the butter begins to turn a golden brown. This should take about 3 minutes. Add and stir in garlic, honey and lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste. Stir thoroughly and set aside
  4. Season salmon with onion/garlic powder and salt and pepper, to taste. Dredge each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon flour and rub the top with 1 tablespoon honey for each filet (I rubbed with my hands). TIP: I was skeptical about searing with the honey on it, so I left honey on one filet and added honey after the searing. There was not a huge difference so either way will work!
  5. Heat olive oil in a large non stick skillet (you can use oven-safe to bake or just a non stick and transfer to a baking sheet/dish
  6. Over medium high heat, add salmon to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side. You aren’t cooking the fish, you’re just searing it so it crisps on the outside
  7. Place into oven and bake until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes, when salmon flakes, or until instant read thermometer reads 145 degrees
  8. Serve immediately topping with the lime sauce and lime zest, if desired
