  • 1 pound salmon, cut into 4 portions

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • ½ cup honey

  • 2 ⅔ fluid ounces cognac (such as Hennessy)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • Himalayan pink salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Coat salmon in lemon and lime juice and place on a baking sheet.

  2. Combine garlic, onion powder, Cajun seasoning, and paprika in a small bowl.

  3. Heat honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until bubbling. Add garlic mixture and cognac. Simmer until flavors combine and sauce starts to thicken, about 5 minutes. Let cool until thick, 10 to 15 minutes.

  4. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Coat salmon in olive oil; season with pink salt and pepper.

  5. Broil salmon for 6 to 8 minutes. Spoon the cognac-honey sauce over the salmon. Continue broiling until light brown on top and fish flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes.
