The sauce for this simple pan-seared salmon “has just the right amount of sweetness with a small kick that follows close behind.” Thank you to our Featured Foodie, The Kitchen Witch!

Total time: 

Serves: 4

  • 4 salmon steaks
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle en adobo
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped

  1. For the sauce: mix maple syrup, chipotle and lime juice, add salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium high, add oil.
  3. Lightly salt the salmon, place the salmon skin side down first into the pan, turn heat down to medium and fry 5 minutes on each side or until crisp and brown. If you prefer your salmon well done, finish it in a 350F oven for another 5 to 10 minutes. Let the salmon rest 2 minutes prior to serving.
  4. Serve with the sauce drizzled over it and garnish with cilantro.
