I love the sweet hot bite of the honey chipotle chicken crispers at Chili’s and I was wondering how I could incorporate it into our menu, but healthier so I came up with this recipe for Honey Chipotle Glazed Salmon and I am sooo excited to share it with y’all for today’s Mouthwatering Monday.
- 1 large salmon fillet, cut in 1/2 or 2 (8 to 10 oz fillets)
- 1/4 C olive oil
- Juice from one medium size lime
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped
- 1 Tbsp adobo sauce
- 1/4 C honey
- Whisk together olive oil, garlic, 1 chopped chipotle pepper and lime juice. Place salmon in a dish and coat with the olive oil mixture, marinate for 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature.
- Remove the salmon from the mixture and cook it in a medium-high heat skillet, that has been lightly drizzled with olive oil.
- While the salmon is cooking, mix the honey and adobo sauce and 1 chopped chipotle in a bowl and set aside.
- Cook the salmon about 7 minutes on each side, until the salmon is opaque on the sides and flakes with a fork.
- Remove the salmon to a plate and then drizzle with the honey chipotle mixture.
The salmon is moist, flaky, sweet and spicy and absolutely tonguegasmic!
