Browned Butter & Lime Salmon

Serves 2

· 2 Fresh or Frozen Salmon Filets

· Kosher Salt and Black Pepper, season to taste

· 1 Tbsp of AP Flour, divided

· 2 Tbsp of Honey, divided

· 2 Tbsp of EV Olive Oil

· Zest of 1 lime

· 6 Tbsp of unsalted butter

· Fresh Lime Juice

· 1 tsp of Honey

· 2 cloves of Fresh Minced Garlic

Directions:

1. On a cutting board layout both salmon fillets, season with salt and pepper. Next, coat with 1 tsp of AP Flour and 1 tsp of honey each on both sides.

2. In a small sauce pot heat and whisk butter until foamy and lightly golden brown; do not overcook to prevent from burning. Remove from heat and whisk in fresh lime juice, 1 tsp of honey, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

3. Heat a sauté pan to medium heat. Add Olive Oil. Then add salmon and sear on both sides for about 3-4 minutes each (depending on thickness). If fillets are thick cuts then place in a preheated 400 °F oven for about 5 minutes or until done.
