Honey-Glazed Salmon

Our Honey-Glazed Salmon is a perfect light meal, and it’s made all the better with fresh-caught fish. One of my dear old friends is a man by the name of Jim. Jim is the fishmonger. If I plan ahead for a dinner party, he will go to the fish market first thing in the morning, at oh-dark-hundred, and pick the best looking salmon he can find. He brings the salmon to his shop and removes all the pin bones and cleans the fish for me to save me time. He does a much better job than I do. Find your fish-monger, he will make the difference in how good your fish dinners taste.

How to Make Honey-Glazed Salmon

The trick to any good meal is in the freshness of ingredients. Fresh squeeze your citrus, get vegetables from a local market and find a man like Jim to bring you the best catch. Use beautiful vegetables and local ingredients will make a noticeable difference in your meals! The honey should be none other than the Eastern Shore’s finest.

You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this amazing dish. Have a look at this list:

  • salmon filets
  • honey
  • fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • fresh-zested lemon zest
  • fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • bourbon
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper

We think that this recipe tastes best when cooked on the grill.

If you have a green egg, that’s a good one, but if you don’t it’s not the end of the world. A day in advance, soak a cedar plank in water for the day, this way it won’t catch fire on the grill. Once you get all the ingredients together, get the grill going. Next, follow these steps in preparing this honey-glazed salmon.

Step one: Prepare the Fish

Rinse fish and remove pin bones and pat dry, apply salt and pepper. Set fish in glass, non-reactive baking pan. Combine all other ingredients into a blender and blend well, Evenly spread the mixture onto the salmon and allow to sit for 45 minutes, at room temperature.

Step two: Cook the fish

Get the grill hot, place the salmon onto the plank and into the grill for 6 to 8 minutes or until the thickest part of the fish reaches an internal temperature of 131 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the salmon from the grill and allow to rest, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

If you like to grill fish, try grilling with wood chips would also help to bring out the delicate flavors of the fish. It takes less than 10 minutes for prep and 10 minutes on the grill. Serve with grilled seasonal vegetables.
