Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Two 6-ounce fillets salmon
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes, plus lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • Steamed rice, for serving
Directions
  • Add the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter to a nonstick skillet and place over medium-high heat. Season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. Add the fish to the skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish and the degree of doneness you like. Remove from the skillet and keep warm.

  • Return the skillet to medium heat and add the honey, soy, remaining 2 tablespoons butter and half of the lime zest and juice. Cook, stirring, until the butter melts and starts to bubble. Cook for a minute until the sauce thickens a little. Add the salmon and spoon over the sauce. Cook for another minute, basting as you go. Sprinkle generously with the cilantro.

  • Stir the remaining lime juice and zest into the cooked rice. Serve the salmon with the rice, extra sauce and lime wedges on the side.
