Broiled Honey-Lime Salmon

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.

Serves 4

4, 5oz salmon fillets, skinless
1/4t garlic powder
1T butter
2T honey*
1t lime zest
2T lime juice
1t soy sauce, low salt**
1T cilantro, chopped, or 1t black sesame seeds, for garnish

Preheat your broiler to high. Line the broiler pan with foil to help with clean up. Pam the broiler pan, place the fish on pan and dust with garlic powder…don’t overdo it.

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.
