  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 salmon fillets, 5-6 ounces each
  • salt, to taste
  • lemon wedges, for garnish
  • parsley, for garnish


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In an oven-proof skillet (stainless steel or light-colored bottom), melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter foams, swirl until the foam dissipates. Continue swirling until golden-brown bits form at the bottom.

  3. Lower the heat to medium-low and stir in the honey, lemon juice, and garlic. Pour half of the sauce into a small bowl and set aside.

  4. Add the salmon fillets to the skillet, skin side down, and transfer to the oven to bake for about 10 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 145°F. (Baking times will vary depending on the size of your fillets.)

  5. Serve the salmon warm with the reserved sauce and sprinkle with salt, to taste. Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.
