Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cassava flour
  • 1 ½ pounds wild salmon, skin-on, cut into 4 to 5 even filets
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  1. In a glass bowl, whisk together the honey, garlic, lime juice and zest, fish sauce and just ½ teaspoon sea salt. Set aside.
  2. Pat salmon filets dry and coat both sides evenly in the cassava flour and remaining ½ teaspoon sea salt.
  3. Heat avocado oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the salmon, flesh side down, for 2 minutes until browned. Flip with a large spatula and sear skin side down for 2 minutes until browned.
  4. Pour in the glaze and allow it to bubble and froth. Continue to cook the salmon skin side down for 2 more minutes as the glaze reduces. Flip one last time and reduce heat to medium-low.
  5. Finish cooking the salmon flesh side down as the glaze caramelizes for 2 more minutes and the fish is cooked throughout.
  6. Transfer to a serving platter and spoon any leftover glaze onto the salmon prior to serving.
