  • Salmon Filets
  • Salt and Peppers
  • Honey
  • Olive Oil
  • Butter
  • Minced Garlic
  • Lime Juice
Ingredients to make this recipe: Salmon, oil, honey, salt, pepper, butter, minced garlic and lime juice

How to make Honey lime salmon:

  • First, heat up a cast iron skillet. We love cast iron but you can use what you prefer. I personally love using this cast iron griddle that I can place right on top of my stove. Plus I can use this on my grill outside.
  • Second, sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper.
  • Next, put the salmon in the skillet and drizzle with honey. Let it cook for 3 minutes on medium high heat. Don’t flip it too early. Wait until the salmon gets the beautiful brown crust.
  • Now flip and cook the salmon for another 2 to 3 minutes until done.
  • Finally, melt the butter in a saucepan. Keep whisking until the butter turns a gold brown. This takes about 3 minutes. Keep a close watch on this so it does not burn.
  • Add the garlic, honey and lime. This is going to be amazing!
  • Drizzle all of this delicious honey butter all over the salmon. Serve and enjoy. Yum!

Serving ideas:

Just keep it simple. The salmon fillets are so fast so you definitely want to keep the side dishes easy.

It is also amazing with just a salad. In fact, I make extra just to have leftovers for lunch. It is so easy to grab during the day and really tasty too.

You are going to be shocked how easy this Salmon recipe is to make and how full of flavor it really is. If you haven’t cooked salmon then today is the day to try it. This delicious glazed salmon goes with just about anything.

This is a recipe I love to keep on the regular menu plan rotation. It is great for those nights that you need dinner fast but won’t something healthy and delicious. I promise that you can have this from grill to table in less time than getting take out.

You will save money and save time. Not to mention that your family will get a great meal. It is a win win for everyone!

  • Heat up a cast iron skillet on medium high heat.
  • Season salmon with the salt and pepper.
  • Add the salmon filets to the skillet and drizzle about a tablespoon of honey on each salmon filet. Allow it to cook for 3 minutes on medium high heat. You want to be the beautiful brown crust on the salmon before you flip it.
  • Flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes until done and fish is flakey. Remove from heat.
  • Meanwhile melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly until the butter begins to turn a golden brown (about 3 minutes).
  • Stir in the garlic, 1 Tablespoon of honey, and the fresh squeezed lime juice.
  • Remove the salmon from the heat and drizzle the honey butter sauce over the cooked salmon.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

    I read that a similar recipe is popular in Belize and Guatemala. I really want to try cooking at home. Thank you for this step by step recipe.

  4. Carrie says:

    Yes, it is.

  5. Barbara says:

    I really want to try this, but need to know if this is a cut of salmon that has the skin on one side. That is the kind of cut I get at Costco.

    This salmon was so flavorful. I tried as I needed something different from just salmon, butter and dillweed, and this fit the bill.
