Main Dish: Brain Tune Honey Glazed Salmon

Brain Tune Honey is your secret ingredient to take this classic dish to a whole other level!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4  6-ounce salmon fillets, thawed if frozen*
  • 3 Tablespoons butter or ghee (ghee is clarified butter)
  • 2 Tablespoons Brain Tune Raw honey
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon slices
  • 3-4 Tablespoons fresh herbs (examples: chives, basil, cilantro, parsley)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. In a small saucepan, mix butter (or ghee), honey, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until melted together and smooth. Stir in salt and taste. Adjust lemon juice and/or salt to taste.
  3. Put salmon on a baking sheet covered with foil. Apply honey glaze to salmon. Arrange lemon slices on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through, spooning extra glaze from the foil back over salmon. Sprinkle with fresh herbs, and additional salt and pepper before serving.

*If you cook a large piece versus fillets, add at least 5-10 minutes extra cooking time. Check it after 5 minutes and estimate from there.

For a thicker glaze: This makes enough glaze to spoon over finished salmon. For thicker glaze, add ½ to 1 teaspoon cornstarch to the glaze as it melts in the saucepan. Continue to cook until the mixture thickens slightly, then brush on salmon as directed.
