Tryphe Specialty Foods Challenge #3: Salmon Filet

Salmon Filet from
Tryphe Specialty Foods
4495 Dunbar Street, Vancouver

For my third Tryphe item, I received a salmon filet! My usual go-to recipe for cooking salmon is actually a recipe that was told to me by a patient at work (I work in a dental office). He promised it was a guaranteed fool-proof recipe that everyone loves, and he made me memorize it and repeat it back to him! Brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon juice, and dijon mustard. I met him about 5 years ago and have made salmon the same way ever since! What he had told me was true- it was fool-proof, easy and a definite crowd pleaser. So, I would officially like to thank you, Mr. Patient for the awesome 5-ingredient marinade that I will forever remember!

Now that you’ve heard the story of how I usually make salmon, I will go on to tell you that I decided not to use my usual salmon marinade. In true “challenge” fashion, I wanted to try a new recipe to see if I could add one to the recipe bank. This one turned out to be a success!

Pan Seared Honey Glazed Salmon with Browned Butter Lime Sauce



    • 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets, rested at room temperature 20 minutes
    • 8 tsp flour, divided
    • 2 Tbsp honey, divided
    • zest of 1 – 2 limes (I like it with a generous amount so in my opinion 2)
    • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 recipe Browned Butter Lime Sauce, recipe follows
Browned Butter Lime Sauce
  • 6 Tbsp salted butter, diced
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Thyme & Olive Oil Baked Potatoes

I eyeballed everything, so after halving the potatoes, I drizzled them with extra virgin olive oil, threw some sprigs of thyme in the pan, and seasoned with kosher salt and ground black pepper.

Olive Oil & Lime Frisee Salad

Again, I just eyeballed this- I mixed together some extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, kosher salt and ground black pepper, then drizzled the dressing over the frisee.

Some of the ingredients!
Potatoes ready for the oven
Frisee is so pretty!
The end result! I personally love limes, so I like to squeeze lime juice over everything!
