Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 4 (6-oz.) salmon filets
  • 8 t. flour, divided
  • 9 t. honey, divided
  • 1 – 2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 T. butter
  • 3 T. fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ t. salt
  • ½ t. pepper
  • zest of 2 limes
Directions
  1. Place the salmon filets on a cutting board and put 1 t. flour on each of each filet, evenly spreading the flour over the salmon. Then, evenly drizzle 1 t. honey on each side of each filet.
  2. Heat 1 T. olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Place the salmon in the pan and cook for 3 – 5 minutes each side, until browned. (Do not overcrowd the pan, do two batches if necessary.)
  3. While salmon is cooking, make the sauce by heating the butter in a small saucepan. Swirl the butter occasionally until it is light brown and fragrant. Remove from heat and whisk in the lime juice, garlic, remaining 1 t. honey, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the sauce over the filets and garnish with the lime zest.
