Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil, grease lightly, and lay salmon on top. Season salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Slice one lime thinly, and slide the slices under the edges of the salmon.

Step 2

In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Stir in honey, sriracha sauce, juice of one lime (about 1 tablespoon), soy sauce, and garlic. Bring to a boil, the reduce to medium heat and cook for 3-4 minutes longer.

Step 3

Pour 2/3 of the sauce over the salmon (reserve remaining sauce for later) and use a spoon or spatula to make sure the sauce covers all of the salmon (you just don't want any "dry" spots). Fold the edges of the foil up around the salmon so the sauce doesn't spill out everywhere (the foil doesn't need to completely cover the salmon).

Step 4

Bake for 15 minutes, then switch to broil and cook another 4-5 minutes until the very edges of the salmon begin to char slightly - watch carefully so the whole salmon doesn't burn.

Step 5

Top salmon with reserved sauce, chopped cilantro and serve.

Oh So Good! I love the ingredients that make up this dish. I followed the recipe as written, except added additional garlic and grated the lime peel to sprinkle over the salmon once it came out of the oven. It came out delightful, packed with flavor and the salmon was cooked to perfection! Thank you so much for sharing Teresa!!

Absolutely wonderful! I was going to make a different recipe out of a magazine but then I saw this recipe on billboard tag and decided to make it instead -- and am I glad I did! I already had a bit over 1 pound of wild salmon and the remainder of the ingredients except for the honey and cilantro. For the honey I used white sugar and I skipped the cilantro. Delicious with rice and fruit! And easy too! Thanks for sharing!
