Best Salmon Evvvvaaaa!!!

I adapted a chicken recipe from (Spiced Honey Lemon Chicken). Not only did it turn out fabulous, but may very well be my favorite salmon marinade ever. There are a couple of questionable ingredients (butter and honey), but not enough to kill you.


2 large salmon fillets
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper
4 tsp olive oil
1 TBSP grass-fed butter, melted
3 TBSP unfiltered, raw honey
zest and juice of 1 lemon (I didn't have any fresh lemons, so used 2 TBSP Real Lemon)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground garam masala (original recipe called for cumin, I ran out)
2 tsp paprika


Combine all ingredients in small bowl, then pour over salmon. Marinate for a minimum of 1 hour in the refrigerator. I marinated mine for 1 hour tonight, but saved a third salmon fillet and am marinating that overnight to see how much better it might be.

Heat oven to 400 F. Line baking dish with foil and place salmon over foil. Broil at 400 for 20-30 mins, depending on thickness of fillets. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout and juices run clear. Then turn oven up to 500 F and broil an additional 5 mins. Watch to ensure marinade does not burn.

Serve with Carmelized Brussel's Sprouts.
