Lemon Glazed Salmon


I had a thick half side of fresh salmon in the freezer.  What a nice surprise!  I thought simple would be best with a light lemon glaze and a side of romano beans.


Lemon Glazed Salmon

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp lemon zest

1/4 cup of honey

1/4 cup of melted butter

4 salmon fillets, skin on

Salt and pepper

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp olive oil

Mix together the lemon, zest, honey and butter together in a sauce pan, then stir and simmer until it thickens into a light glaze.  Set aside and keep warm.  If the sauce thickens too much, add a little water and reheat.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper, heat the butter and oil in a saute pan, then add the salmon, skin side down and cook, turning every 2 minutes for about 8 minutes.

Place the salmon on 4 plates and spoon over the lemon sauce.
