Browned Butter Honey Garlic Salmon
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
2-3 cloves garlic
1-2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
4 wild caught salmon fillets
Arrange oven shelf about 8-inches away from heat element in your oven. Preheat your oven to broil . Place butter in a cast iron skillet . Cook over medium heat, stirring and swirling pan occasionally for about 3 minutes, or until the foam settles; the butter begins to change in colour to golden brown and has a nutty fragrance. Pour in the honey and let it dissolve into the butter. Then add in the garlic and sautÃ© for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add in the lemon juice; stir well to combine all of the flavours together. Add the salmon steaks to the butter in the pan; cook each fillet for 3-4 minutes or until golden, while basting the tops with the pan juices. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the lemon wedges around the salmon. Transfer the pan to your oven to broil / grill for a further 5-6 minutes, or until the tops of the salmon are nicely charred. To serve, drizzle with the reserved brown butter sauce. Serve with steamed vegetables; over rice or with a salad.
