- 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season salmon all over with salt and pepper, then add to the skillet skin-side up. Cook salmon until deeply golden, about 6 minutes, then flip over and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.
Add butter and garlic. When the butter has melted and looks foamy, stir in broth, lime juice, honey, and cumin. Bring mixture to a simmer then stir in cilantro.
Reduce heat to medium and add the salmon back to the skillet. Simmer until the sauce has reduced and the salmon is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more.
Garnish with more cilantro and serve over cooked white rice.
