Honey Glazed Salmon with Brown Butter Lime Sauce

So I wasn't sure about this recipe at first but it is now one of my favorites and I'm not a big fish eater! My 5 year old son even loves it!

Here is where my husband found the recipe!

Honey Glazed Salmon with Brown Butter Lime Sauce:

  • 4 (6oz) salmon fillets, deboned 
  • 4T flour
  • 2T honey
  • olive oil for the pan
  • lime zest for serving
  • For the Sauce:
  • 6T butter
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 4T lime juice
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1/2t freshly ground black pepper
Heres what to do:

Swirl olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel, then dust lightly with flour. Using your hands, pat the flour evenly over the top of the fillet (if fillet is skinless, do this on both sides). Drizzle a small amount of honey over the top of the floured area and spread to coat. 

Place salmon in hot pan and cook 3-5 minutes per side, or until a nice caramelized brown crust is achieved and the salmon is cooked to desired temperature.

While the salmon is cooking. go ahead and start on your sauce:

    To Make Sauce:
    In a small saucepan, brown the butter over medium heat, swirling frequently. The butter will melt, then foam and bubble, then begin to brown. As soon as it smells nutty and the color has changed, remove from heat (if you don't watch it closely here, it will burn)
    Add garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
 Remove salmon to serving plate and drizzle with Brown Butter Lime Sauce and sprinkle with lime zest.
