Description

This easy honey chipotle salmon is made with only 5 ingredients and comes together in less than 30 minutes.


Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons (71g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup (85g) honey
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced (I use 2)
  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chili pepper*
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 individual salmon fillets (or a large 2 lb. (900g) fillet)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk everything together (except for the salmon, of course). Place the salmon in a tupperware, baking dish, or zipped-top bag. Pour half of the marinade on top. Give everything a nice shake. Reserve the rest for step 4. Marinate for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, fire up the grill to medium-high heat or preheat oven to 375°F (191°C).
  3. You can grill the salmon on foil or on a cedar plank. Grill the salmon skin side down for 15 minutes—about 10 minutes per 1-inch inch thickness measured from the thickest part of the fillet or until the thickest part reaches 145°F (63°C) internal heat.
  4. Or bake the salmon on a lined baking sheet for 15–20 minutes depending on thickness and until the thickest part reaches 145°F (63°C) internal heat.
  5. Brush the warm salmon with remaining marinade before serving. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator for a few days. Reheat to your liking.
