Honey Glazed Salmon

It's sweet, it's tart and it's so easy to make, this pan-seared salmon is a smash for the summer kitchen. The honey glaze caramelizes perfectly, adding a bit of crunch and a smoky flavor that's the perfect counterpoint to the sweet, flaky salmon.

           INGREDIENTS

            METHOD

4 (6 oz each, or about 24 oz total) Salmon fillets, boneless and skinless

Salt and black pepper, to taste

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 Tbsp light olive oil or any high-heat cooking oil

1/4 cup honey

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 medium lime, cut into wedges

Chives, to garnish (optional)

To make the glaze: In a measuring cup, combine 1/4 cup honey and 2 Tbsp soy sauce. Stir until well combined and set aside.

Season both sides of your boneless, skinless salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Pour 1/4 cup flour into a shallow plate and dredge both sides of the salmon in flour, shaking off excess flour.

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp light olive oil.

Note: Do not cook over high heat or you will burn the glaze.

Brush the first side of salmon generously with half of the glaze and once oil is hot, add salmon to the pan (glaze-side-down). In the pan, brush the second side generously with remaining glaze. Sauté salmon on the first side for 3 minutes, turn and sauté second side another 3 minutes. Glaze should be caramelized and salmon should be just cooked through and opaque inside when flaked.

Squeeze fresh lime juice over the top and garnish with chopped chives to serve.
