I’m always intimidated to cook with salmon. It’s one of those temperamental ingredients that can be completely undercooked or overcooked. But with Wolf’s dual fuel range, you’ll be able to cook the perfect salmon right at home – wonderfully crisp and seared on the outside and completely cooked through to perfection on the inside.

Wolf dual fuel ranges feature the best of two worlds – gas cooking topside and an electric oven with dual convection below, ideal for cooking salmon. Now I’ve tried the pan-fried method on several occasions but the salmon either ends up too overcooked on the outside or completely raw on the inside. So by searing it first, you’ll get that amazingly crisp exterior, crusted with a sweet honey glaze. Once that’s done, you can pop it right in the oven to let it completely cook through.

Wolf dual convection also produces more uniform heating than a single convection fan can deliver. Wolf ovens, including the oven in the dual fuel range, include two convection fans that work to ensure air and heat is circulated evenly throughout the oven cavity – no hot or cold spots – meaning your food turns out completely evenly cooked. So your fish will always be cooked through without overcooking it. Amazing, right?

And once you top it off with the browned butter lime sauce – well, I won’t be the one to judge if you start guzzling down the sauce first. It’s absolutely heavenly, and the perfect complement to the honey crusted salmon. It’s so good, we made this recipe three times already just this week!

Honey Glazed Salmon

The easiest, most flavorful salmon you will ever make. And that browned butter lime sauce is to die for!

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon filets
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lime

For the browned butter lime sauce

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. To make the browned butter lime sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic, honey and lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.
  3. Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Dredge each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon flour and drizzle with 1 tablespoon honey.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add salmon to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  5. Place into oven and bake until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately with browned butter lime sauce and lime zest, if desired.
