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.

Serve this salmon with a vegetable risotto or roasted potatoes and fresh cooked green beans or peas.

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each, skin on)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • Sea salt (or kosher salt to taste)
  • ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Grease a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan

  2. Heat oven to 400 F (200 C/Gas 6).

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

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

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

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