Fresh, flavorful, light, party in your mouth…these are all of the things that you will be thinking when you eat this honey lime cilantro salmon. At least I was thinking all of those things so I’m assuming the chances are high that you will be thinking along those lines too!
This meal takes all of 20 minutes, including cooking time, to end up on a plate in front of you. Cooking really doesn’t get much easier than this. We paired this honey lime cilantro salmon with the chipotle sweet potato mash we posted on Thursday and oh boy…let me just tell you it was a match made in heaven.
Do yourself a favor, go to the store right now and buy a nice piece of center cut wild salmon, cilantro, limes and honey…assuming you already have olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper. Take the 20 minutes to put this salmon together and serve it alongside our chipotle sweet potato mash. No need to send us a thank you note, we will just get the formalities over with right now and tell you that you’re welcome.
- 1 lb wild salmon
- 2 Tbsp good quality olive oil
- 2 limes, juiced
- zest of 1 lime
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
- 2 Tbsp honey
- ½ C chopped cilantro
- Heat bbq on high heat. Place salmon on a large piece of foil and season with S&P.
- In a small bowl add olive oil, lime juice and zest, garlic, honey and cilantro and whisk. Brush over the top of the salmon and wrap salmon in foil.
- Grill foil wrapped salmon for approx 15 minutes until cooked through. Remove from foil, skin will slide right off of the bottom of salmon. Serve with your favorite veggies or side - we served ours with chipotle sweet potato mash.
