Meyer Lemon Caramelized Salmon

Prep Time 00:05 Cook Time 00:10 Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice, fresh-squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 6-ounce filets of wild salmon
  • sliced fresh basil leaves, for serving

Directions

  1. In a medium-size stainless steel saucepan, whisk together the lemon juice, coconut sugar and sea salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes until the liquid is darkened and caramelized. It will not thicken into a caramel.
  2. Meanwhile, chop salmon into 1-inch pieces. In two batches, cook salmon pieces for 2 minutes per side for a total of 4 to 5 minutes until the center is no longer a translucent pink. Transfer salmon to a serving plate, drizzle any leftover liquid on top, and sprinkle with a bit more sea salt and the fresh basil. ​

Recipe Notes

I prefer thick filets of salmon for this recipe since we are chopping them into chunks.
