cilantro-honey salmon

I came across this recipe on the website All Recipes and I was intrigued by the tons of rave reviews. If you’re like me {unsure what a honey-cilantro marinade would taste like} … the answer is, AMAZING!

IThe sweetness of the honey contrasts really nicely to the cilantro and garlic flavors. Plus, it’s healthy {all those omega-3s!} and could not be easier to make. The original recipe is for grilled salmon, but I baked mine in the oven instead. I’m sure either way would be delicious!

cilantro-honey salmon

– 1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro
– 2 cloves chopped garlic
– 1/2 cup honey
– juice from one lime
– 2 salmon filets
– salt and pepper to taste

1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together cilantro, garlic, honey, and lime juice. Heat until the honey is easily stirred, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.

2. Place salmon steaks in a baking dish, and season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade over salmon, cover, and refrigerate 20 minutes.

3. Bake salmon at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until salmon is firm to the touch and flakes easily with a fork.

I served mine with rice and a green salad. This salmon also goes great with these low-fat garlic cheddar biscuits!

Happy weekend!
