Honey Glazed Salmon

This healthy salmon is purely heaven on a plate. It is seared to perfection, then topped off with a brown butter, lime, garlic, honey glaze that is so delicious. The flavors in this salmon are just perfection. If you are going to make any dish I post, please try this one when I say it is amazing, it is AMAZING..Even if you think you do not like salmon, you will love this.  I made this for dinner tonight and every time I make this my husband and kids say you cant get this food in a restaurant, its so delicious. I made tonight with brown rice and fresh spinach. I found this recipe a while ago and have been making it since. Perfect with some rice on the side and veggies. Give this one a try its top 10 for me.


  • 4-5 Salmon filets 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed 
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 2. Start to make the browned butter lime sauce, in a medium saucepan over medium heat melt butter. Whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes. Careful you do not burn the butter, then stir and whisk in garlic, honey and lime juice, salt and pepper, set aside.
  • 3. Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Dredge each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon flour and drizzle with 1 tablespoon honey.
  • 4. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Do not over crowd the pan, if you have a small pan work in batches by adding salmon to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side until you get that crisp crust. Then place into oven and bake until completely cooked through, about 8 minutes. 
  • Serve immediately the salmon on a plate then pour the browned butter lime sauce over the top and if desired lime zest and a lime wedge to garnish.
