Sweet, sour and perfect for the entire family

Ingredients:

  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, rested at room temperature 20 minutes
  • 8 teaspoons flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • Zest of 1­ - 2 limes (I like it with a generous amount so in my opinion 2)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, diced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

Place butter in a small (light colored) saucepan. Cook over medium heat, swirling pan occasionally, until butter is fragrant and has turned a tan shade.

Remove from heat and add browned butter along with lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper to a blender.


Blend on low speed for 30 seconds to 1 minute until well blended.


Pour sauce into a small glass dish (note: whisk butter mixture with a fork before pouring onto salmon as it will separate, rewarm if needed).


Working in batches of two salmon fillets at a time, or using two skillets, because you don't want to overcrowd the salmon when cooking it on the stove top and it cooks more evenly.

Place salmon fillets on a cutting board or plate and sprinkle 1 teaspoon flour over each side of the salmon fillets and spread flour to evenly coat.

Evenly drizzle 3/4 teaspoons honey over each side of the flour coated salmon fillets. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil into a 10-inch non-­stick skillet, swirl pan to evenly coat bottom and heat over medium heat. Once oil it hot, carefully place salmon in pan and cook over medium heat, 3 to 5 minutes per side until salmon has cooked through and bottom has nicely browned.


Plate salmon immediately, drizzle each fillet with 1 1/2 -­ 2 tablespoons browned butter lime sauce and sprinkle with lime zest. Serve warm.

*Note: Once you remove the salmon from the plate some of the flour and honey coating will stick to the plate so I'd recommend just scraping it up with a spatula and adding it to the salmon once it's in the pan. Alternately you could just coat one side with the flour and honey then after adding it to the pan you can coat the top side with flour and honey. Either way works I'd just say don't waste any of that delicious coating.
