I love fish and I love good sauces. Sometimes fish needs a good sauce……not a heavy cream sauce, but a sauce to add just a little pizazz, or zip. I love this sauce on baked chicken too. It’s even good on some fresh, steamed broccoli or spinach. Super quick to put together, it is delicious. This time, I put it on some pan grilled salmon. Ohhhhhhhh, so good. If you serve it with rice, you get all that sauce running into your rice and it’s just so yummy. You don’t have to use salmon. Try it with any fish really….or chicken. You wont be disappointed.
Butter, chili paste, orange juice and honey
Salmon with Orange Honey Chili Butter Sauce
for 1 serving
6 – 8oz of fresh Salmon (or another fish that you prefer)
In a lightly oiled skillet, add the salmon, skin side down. Remove the skin if you prefer. Cook to desired doneness. I like mine rare and cook it for about 3 minutes a side. While it’s cooking, prepare the sauce.
1 Tblsp of butter
1 Tblsp of honey
1 tsp Asian chili paste (found in the Asian section of grocery store)
1 Tblsp orange juice
Mix all ingredients together. Pour it into your skillet with the fish just as you are ready to remove your fish. After removing the fish and placing it onto your plate, pour the sauce all over the fish. You will love this!!
we eat a lot of chicken at home… this would give our bland boring chicken a little kick! Can’t wait to try!
Jennifer, yes, it would!!!! you will love it!
