Last year I made a goal to try cooking seafood a little more. I love seafood but the idea of cooking it really intimidates me. I'm not ready to cook a fresh lobster but I've tried a few new things and have found this fantastic salmon recipe that I'm over the moon in love with! We've had it a few times now and the family totally loves it too. The salmon is so tender and the honey glaze is spot on. And the browned butter limes sauce is to die for! This has got to be the easiest, most flavorful salmon recipe ever. Definitely a keeper!
4 salmon fillets
salt and pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
Zest of 1 lime
For the browned 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
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. To make the browned butter lime sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic, honey and lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste; set aside. Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Coat each salmon filet with a think layer of flour and drizzle with 1 tablespoon honey. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add salmon to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side. I like to add a little more honey to each side before flipping it over. Place into oven and bake at 400 degrees until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Serve immediately with browned butter lime sauce and lime zest, if desired.
