Delicious and absurdley easy to prepare! I cooked mine covered in a 350 degree oven for 15 or 20 mins instead of grilling and it came out perfectly. My husband loved it and wants to make sure we have it again!
Just didn't like this. The honey overpowered the cilantro/other flavors.
My all-time favorite salmon recipe! You will be amazed at how well this pulls together. This is the recipe that gets your kids to like fish. My roommate, who hates fish, tried it and loved it. The honey carmelizes on the salmon, making a satiny glaze. The cilantro in this pairs very well with the lime and surprisingly well with the honey, which offers a very nice sweetness. This recipe is very fast, it takes about 10 minutes to put together, and is ready in another 10. Restaurant quality. We broiled ours for about 6 minutes per side which is what gave it the wonderful glaze.
this was delicious! I used a little sugar instead of honey and added olive oil and puried it in the blender. I marinated the salmon and scored the skin. I broiled it in the oven, skin side up, after putting more sauce in the scores. It was sweet AND DELICIOUS.
This recipe was not only simple, but interesting in flavor, which is nice for a change! The marinade is perfect for salmon as the flavors mesh well together and still allow for the taste of the salmon to come through. It's light and healthy and tasty. I actually cooked the salmon in the oven at 400 for 18 minutes. The trick is to let the honey carmelize so that there is a glaze and a just-short-of-crunchy outer coating on the sides. Very good and will use not only for simple meal, but for guests too!
I used this glaze on chicken and cooked it on the grill. It was fantastic!!!!!! Serve it with mango and avocado on the side.
I marinated the chicken in a big pyrex dish, then when grilling the chicken, I put the dish with the remaining marinade right on the grill to reduce the marinade to a sauce. I then added some white wine and red pepper flakes to counteract the honey. Pour this mixture over the chicken before serving and it's out of this world.
What a great summer dish.
Both my husband and I really liked this dish. We tried grilling the salmon on the Foreman but I would not recommend this as cleaning the grill later was sooo difficult! There was plenty of marinade left too. Quite a waste. So next time when I make it again, I'll probably cut the marinade to half.
Cilantro and honey are such a nice pairing. Next time we will use smaller filets so that there is more surface area to absorb the marinade. I think scoring the skin of samlon is a good idea, too. Great recipe and oh-so-easy.
