Are you planning an elegant dinner at home, a date night or other intimate celebration? This garlic-butter salmon is a classy, delicate dish that will make your kitchen seem like a four-star restaurant. An aromatic mix of lemon, honey, garlic and butter gives a depth of flavor that rivals that of any salmon at a seafood restaurant. Baking the fish allows the salmon to absorb the flavors and produces a tender, flaky dish.
If you're thinking this dish takes forever to cook, think again! The recipe that follows takes only 30 minutes to prep. A quick optional broil at the end of cooking gives the salmon a delicious crust. People who aren't fans of salmon can substitute any other meaty fish, such as swordfish. The salmon is best served with a green salad or steamed white or brown rice.
