A quick and easy sheet pan salmon dinner! This broiled honey glazed salmon is sweet, savory and packed with flavor from coriander, lime and a dash of cayenne. Broiled with snap peas and finished with scallions and fresh lime juice—fresh and flavorful!
- 2 pounds sugar snap peas, strings removed
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 lime, zested
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander, or cumin
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 4 (6-ounce) skin-on salmon filets, 1–1 ¼ inches thick*
- 2 scallions, sliced
Heat broiler to high with rack set 6-inches from element.
On a large baking sheet, toss peas with oil, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Broil peas until slightly tender and starting to char, 3–6 minutes (see notes below)*
Meanwhile, whisk together honey, 2 teaspoons lime zest, coriander, cayenne, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
Clear four spaces on baking sheet and arrange salmon fillets skin-side down on prepared sheet; pat dry and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
Reserve 2 tablespoons of glaze in a separate bowl for serving; spread remaining glaze evenly over salmon fillets.
Broil salmon until mostly opaque but center still looks undercooked, tops are charred, and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the centers registers 120–125ºF (48–52ºC), 10–12 minutes.
Spoon reserved glaze over salmon and sprinkle with scallions. Serve with lime wedges.
Salmon: for this recipe, the thicker your salmon fillet, the better. However, if you can only find thin wild-caught fillets you can still make this!
Here’s how to adapt the recipe: broil snap peas until tender and somewhat charred. Add salmon to baking sheet and broil until cooked through and flaky, 4–6 minutes.
Snap Peas: The fresher more plump the peas are, the longer the broiling will take. The smaller and less plump the peas are, the less broiling time they will need. Additionally, every broiler is different, so keep an eye on them and give them a toss every couple of minutes as needed.
Coriander: if you don’t have coriander you can substitute with cumin, though I really prefer coriander here.
