Pan-Seared Salmon with Lemon Herb Butter


  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley, for garnish
  • Lime wedges, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for an easy cleanup.

2. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

3. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, garlic, honey, lime juice, and zest.

4. Evenly drizzle the mixture over the salmon fillets.

5. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork. For a golden finish, broil for the last 2-3 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning.

6. Sprinkle with parsley, add a squeeze of lime, and serve hot.

7. Variations & Tips:

8. For a spicy twist, include red pepper flakes or a touch of sriracha in the butter mix.

9. Bottled lime juice can substitute for fresh in a pinch, though fresh lime offers unmatched zest.

10. Make extra sauce for an easy meal prep solution—it’s delicious on chicken or roasted vegetables.

11. Transform leftovers into a new meal by flaking the salmon over a salad or mixing it into pasta.

12. Don’t forget the parsley garnish for a touch of elegance and a pop of color.

Enjoy !
