4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

Salt and pepper, to taste

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon lime juice

Zest of 1 lime

2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley, for garnish

Lime wedges, for serving


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for an easy cleanup.

Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, garlic, honey, lime juice, and zest.

Evenly drizzle the mixture over the salmon fillets.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork. For a golden finish, broil for the last 2-3 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning.

Sprinkle with parsley, add a squeeze of lime, and serve hot.

Variations & Tips:

For a spicy twist, include red pepper flakes or a touch of sriracha in the butter mix.

Bottled lime juice can substitute for fresh in a pinch, though fresh lime offers unmatched zest.

Make extra sauce for an easy meal prep solution—it’s delicious on chicken or roasted vegetables.

Transform leftovers into a new meal by flaking the salmon over a salad or mixing it into pasta.

Don’t forget the parsley garnish for a touch of elegance and a pop of color.
