Cilantro Lime Salmon

Yields: 4
Prep Time: 0 hours 20 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 35 mins

  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 6-oz. salmon filets
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c. low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 c. lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • 1 1/2 c. cooked white rice, for serving


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.

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.

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.

Garnish with more cilantro and serve over cooked white rice.
