Hot Honey Salmon With Fake Butternut Gratin

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes

Spicy honey salmon and faux gratin - both amazing.

If you want to blow your manicure budget on $12 pre-spiced honey, by all means go ahead. But you could also just mix up some honey and chili, whip in mustard, coat salmon, and come up with this killer dish. The fake gratin couldn’t be easier; the cream and parm bind together to make a gratin so lazy I can practically call the shots from the couch.

For the squash:

  • 1

    butternut squash (2 ½ pounds)

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, plus some whole sprigs

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ½

    cup heavy cream

  • 1

    cup finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

For the Salmon:

  • ¼

    cup grainy Dijon mustard

  • ¼

    cup honey

  • 2

    teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ½

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1

    lemon, thinly sliced, seeds removed as much as possible from slices
