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!
