Foil Baked Honey Cilantro Lime Salmon

Recipe Swap

Serves: 4-6



  • 1 large salmon fillet
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • juice of 2 limes (plus one lime, thinly sliced)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and grease a large baking sheet with foil. Lay salmon on foil and season with salt and pepper on both sides to taste. Slip lime slices underneath the salmon.

Stir together butter, lime juice, honey, and garlic. Pour mixture over salmon. Fold sides of foil up over the salmon (don't worry if it doesn't cover the salmon completely).

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Switch oven to broil and cook another five minutes. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top and serve.


**Don't worry about the size of your salmon fillet.


For a lighter version, you can cut back the butter to 4 tablespoons instead of a half cup (8 tablespoons). Keep in mind, a very large salmon fillet like the one I used, 8 tablespoons is not a terribly huge amount when divided between 4-6 servings.
