We absolutely love salmon at our house and I love trying new and different ways to prepare it. When I saw this Honey-Lime Glazed Salmon I was hooked immediately by the Browned Butter Lime sauce. This salmon is easy and fast and incredibly delicious. It’s on our must repeat list!
Honey-Lime Glazed Salmon
4 salmon filets
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
zest of 1 lime
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
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. Dredge each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon 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.
Place into oven and bake until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
Serve immediately with browned butter lime sauce and lime zest, if desired.
