"A nice, light, healthy summertime dinner. Salmon is marinated in a lime and honey mixture. And anytime I add lime to a dish, I want a margarita the size of my head to go with it!"

6 (5 ounce)
fresh lime juice
orange blossom honey
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
lime slices for garnish
We really enjoyed this recipe. I baked it in a foil packet as recommended and that kept it very moist and full of flavour. We poured more of the sauce over the salmon once it was baked to add more of the flavour. I bet this would be delicious on the BBQ as well! We'll make it again!
This recipe needs some major rework. It is bland to a fault, I will definitely not be using as-is again. I used fresh caught coho salmon (what a waste!). Next time I will add pressed garlic, kosher salt and reduce the olive oil to 1/2 tsp. As it stands, the marinade does not permeate the fish at all!
Where's the tequila? I wonder if that would taste good! This is a nice simple marinade. I added chopped garlic and a dash of cayenne. Served with curried rice pilaf from this site and sauteed swiss chard. Delish! For the cook who tried to marinate coho salmon..I have also tried to marinate coho but with a different recipe. It also did not work, so I believe the problem is with the fish, not this particular recipe. For some reason the coho just does not absorb any type of marinade. Maybe because it's so lean and firm-fleshed?
Hands down my favorite salmon recipe. The lime juice and the honey cut through the richness of the salmon and make it very light and fresh tasting.
I have made this a few times now and each time I get rave reviews!! My secret is I add a splash of tequila to the marinade and let it marinade longer than 30 minutes....who ever heard of a margarita without a little tequila??
This recipe was fabulous. I used sockeye salmon and I added a shot of tequila and cilantro to the marinade. I served it with a cold orzo salad with feta cheese, spinach, red onion and balsamic vinegar. I will be making this often
This was delicious. I recommend marinating the salmon longer- a few hours or so. I ran out of brown sugar so I added a ½ tablespoon of Karo syrup (brown sugar variety) to the other ingredients. I also hit the salmon with the broiler for 5 minutes to slightly brown it up a bit on the top. Fantastic lighter dish.
This was yummy! It was very light tasting and easy to make. I had to replace the orange blossom honey with clover honey. Either way it I will still be cooking this one again.
