Of all the fish dishes I prepare for clients, salmon dishes are the most popular, so I’m always on the lookout for new recipes. I found this one, oddly enough, at the fish counter at a local supermarket.
BROILED HONEY-LIME SALMON
4, 5oz salmon fillets, skinless
1/4t garlic powder
1t lime zest
2T lime juice
1t soy sauce, low salt**
1T cilantro, chopped, or 1t black sesame seeds, for garnish
Place the pan 6″ below the broiler, broil for about 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in honey, lime zest and juice and the soy sauce. Brush the glaze over the fish, then return it to oven. Continue to broil 4-7 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. Garnish and serve.
* instead of honey, I use agave syrup for my diabetic clients as it’s more slowly absorbed by the body.
** if you’re gluten-sensitive, use tamari instead.
