My Recipe Box - Cilantro Lime Honey Salmon and Mayo

Pinned from Julia's Album.

Serve this with potato onion mushroom packages and everything is done in the oven with hardly any cleanup. I added broccoli to the potato package as well, with olive oil and Italian salad dressing.

1 lb salmon
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
3 garlic cloves minced

Preheat oven to 400 F.
Pat dry salmon. Brush with 1 tablespoon of olive oil from 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, chopped cilantro, and garlic. Mix to combine. Spread this mixture over the salmon.
Do not cover salmon with foil, leave it open (with foil sides up) and bake it just like that, at 400 F for 15-20 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.

I ad libbed the mayo and it turned out well.

Juice of a lime (this may be too much depending on how much mayo you are using)
Some basil
Wasabi to taste
