Cilantro-Lime Honey Garlic Salmon
Wild-caught salmon is easily one of my FAVORITE foods, like I could eat it almost daily. Add garlic, cilantro, lime, and honey to the mix and it’s hard to go wrong! Not a fan of salmon? Try this recipe – the right marinade can really make a big difference.
Not only does it taste delicious, but salmon is packed full of nutrients. The World’s Healthiest Foods reports just 4 ounces of wild-caught salmon contains:
- Vitamin B12 (236% daily recommended value)
- Vitamin D (127%)
- Selenium (78.3%)
- Vitamin B3 (56.3%)
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids (55%)
- Protein (53.1%)
- Phosphorus (52.1%)
- Vitamin B6 (37.6%)
- Iodine (21.3%

Sharing is caring friends, so I’m sharing this recipe adapted from Julia’s Album that I have been using for a couple years now and am in love with!
- 1 lb salmon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- cracked pepper and sea salt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Divide salmon into desired portions. Rinse and pat dry salmon. Brush with 1 tablespoon of olive oil on all sides. Season with salt and pepper. Place the salmon on a large piece of foil. Fold foil sides and ends up (1 or 2 inches high) tightly around the salmon. Place the salmon in foil on a baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, combine honey, lime juice, and garlic. Mix to combine. Spread this mixture over the salmon. Sprinkle chopped cilantro on top.
- Do not cover salmon with foil, leave it open (with foil sides up) and bake it just like that, at 400 F for 20-25 minutes.
- Carefully remove salmon from foil, separating the salmon from the skin which will remain stuck to the foil. Place the salmon onto a serving plate. Carefully scoop the sauce from around the salmon and pour over the salmon.
It’s super simple, nutritious, and delicious. What’s not to love?
