These baked salmon fillets are glazed with a tasty combination of honey, lime juice, and orange juice. The salmon is prepared and baked in 20 minutes or less.

  • 4 tablespoons honey

  3. Place salmon fillets, skin-side down, in prepared baking pan.

  4. Combine honey, lime juice, and orange juice; stir until well blended.

  5. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then spoon the honey and juice mixture over fillets.

  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
