Honey Lime Glazed Salmon

This is a flavor packed but easy "go-to" marinade for salmon.
It only has 4 items that you should already have in your kitchen!
Remember when buying any seafood, the best is usually wild caught and ask them if it has been frozen. Fresh and wild is the best scenario but of course, farm raised is often cheaper so you can definitely still get that. Frozen filets work too. Whatever you have. 

So make your marinade and coat the filet in the marinade. 



Then cook according to your prerogative in the oven or on the grill.

I grilled and then baked to finish and it amazing!! Serve with fresh green beans or asparagus and wild rice or red potatoes. 

A perfect fast and healthy dinner!



Honey Lime Glazed Salmon
Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook

Serves 4 people with 1/4 lb portions or 2 people with 1/2 pound portions

Ingredients
1 pound salmon filet or 4 1/4 pound filets
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt

Stir together honey, lime zest, salt and pepper. Brush on flesh side of filets.

For grilling: Place salmon skin side down on grill for 5-6 minutes and then flip, cooking 5-6 minutes for other side, or until salmon is tender and flaky with a fork.

For grilling then baking: Place salmon skin side down on grill for 3-4 minutes and then flip, cooking 3-4 minutes for other side. This is to lock in the flavor and get those great grill marks.
Finish in the oven by cooking at 400 for 8 to 10 minutes or until salmon is tender and flaky with a fork. 

Baking only: Heat oven to 400. Bake 15-18 minutes or until salmon is tender and flaky with a fork.

Enjoy!!
