A nice, light, healthy summertime dinner. Salmon is marinated in a lime and honey mixture. And anytime I add lime to a dish, I want a margarita the size of my head to go with it!

Directions

  1. Place salmon fillets in a 9x13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl, stir together the lime juice, honey, brown sugar, and olive oil. Pour over the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to marinate.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the center of the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lime slices, and serve immediately.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I baked it in a foil packet as recommended and that kept it very moist and full of flavour. We poured more of the sauce over the salmon once it was baked to add more of the flavour. I bet this would be delicious on the BBQ as well! We'll make it again!

Where's the tequila? I wonder if that would taste good! This is a nice simple marinade. I added chopped garlic and a dash of cayenne. Served with curried rice pilaf from this site and sauteed swiss chard. Delish! For the cook who tried to marinate coho salmon..I have also tried to marinate coho but with a different recipe. It also did not work, so I believe the problem is with the fish, not this particular recipe. For some reason the coho just does not absorb any type of marinade. Maybe because it's so lean and firm-fleshed?

Hands down my favorite salmon recipe. The lime juice and the honey cut through the richness of the salmon and make it very light and fresh tasting.
