I usually keep my “special” meals for the weekends or Monday nights when I have the day off and the time. I got off work at a decent time today and wanted to cook. This is one of those easy recipes that make a weekday meal seem special without a lot of effort.
You will need:
- Wild Salmon Fillets with skin on (I used fresh salmon caught up north by my boyfriend on his yearly fishing trip; so special!) 2 – 4
- Salt And Pepper
- Olive Oil, For Cooking
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 3 -5 Tablespoons Honey
- 3 -5 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 3 whole Limes
- Cilantro, For Serving
- Cooked Rice, For Serving
Season the salmon with salt and pepper
Heat the Olive Oil and a tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Place the salmon (skin side down) and grill for about 4-5 minutes until the skin is crispy then turn over for about 2-3 minutes. Pull the salmon out of the pan and put aside on a plate.
Add a little extra oil and butter to the pan then add the honey, soy sauce and lime juice. Let the sauce simmer for a few seconds to allow it to thicken. This is where I adjust the flavour by adding extra honey or soy sauce or lime juice to taste.
Return the salmon to the pan and turn it over a few times to coat it with the sauce. Simmer with the lid on until salmon is cooked.
Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with cilantro and sliced limes.
I served this with herbed rice and an iceberg lettuce chopped salad.
Let me know if you try this out and how you liked it.
