STICKY GARLIC BUTTER SALMON
This garlic butter salmon is so easy, yet so flavorful. Simple to make, comes together fast, is delicious enough that everyone adores it – what more could you ask for?!
4 salmon filets
kosher salt and pepper
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
⅓ cup maple syrup or honey
2 tablespoons your favorite BBQ sauce
¼ cup water
chopped fresh parsley, for serving
lemon wedges, for serving
rice, for serving
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Season the salmon filets all over with salt and pepper.
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the butter. Once melted, stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Stir in the maple syrup, BBQ sauce and water. Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce it to a simmer. Add the salmon into the skillet. Spoon the glaze over top of the salmon every 30 seconds or so. Cook and spoon it over for about 5 minutes.
Transfer the entire skillet, uncovered, to the 425 degrees F oven. Roast for 5 to 8 minutes, until the salmon is just cooked through, is opaque and pink and flakes easily with a fork.
Sprinkle the salmon with chopped fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
Serve with white or brown rice!
