Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 15 minutes
    •    Cook time: 20 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    kosher salt
    •    1/2 tsp cumin
    •    2 tbsps butter
    •    2 tbsps honey
    •    1/4 cup lime juice
    •    4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets
    •    2 cloves garlic, minced
    •    2 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
    •    freshly ground black pepper
    •    1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
    •    1 1/2 cup cooked white rice, for serving
    •    1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season salmon all over with salt and pepper, then add to the skillet skin-side up. Cook salmon until deeply golden, about 6 minutes, then flip over and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add butter and garlic. When the butter has melted and looks foamy, stir in broth, lime juice, honey, and cumin. Bring mixture to a simmer then stir in cilantro.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and add the salmon back to the skillet. Simmer until the sauce has reduced and the salmon is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  4. Garnish with more cilantro and serve over cooked white rice.
