Citrus salmon baked in foil


Okay, so I want to acknowledge three things. The first thing is I need to praise God for providing me the confidence in writing a food blog to not only share my enjoyment of cooking with able-bodied people but also to teach individuals who have physical challenges how to cook and or become more confident in the kitchen. And not mention I’m so very appreciative He has given me the love and talent for cooking because if weren’t for HIM this blog wouldn’t be here today. The next one is I would like to say thanks to all who has read and liked my blog posts. I really do appreciate it! 🙂 🙂

The third one is I’m very thankful I expanded my horizons a few weeks ago in eating the maple glazed salmon. I know I’ve said it before but that dish was fantastic and lol ever since then I feel like my likeness for seafood has increased. I hope if you get a chance to try it you’ll appreciate seafood just as much as I do. Moreover, I’m looking forward to trying new salmon recipes like the one I’m going to be showing you today.

Cilantro-Lime Honey Garlic Salmon (baked in foil)

Ingredients

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

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

2. While the oven is preheating, get a sheet of wax paper and put it on your kitchen counter. Next, rinse the salmon with cold water then pat dry fish with paper towels. 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.

3. In a small bowl, combine honey, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and garlic. Mix to combine. Spread this mixture over the salmon. Do not completely cover fish with foil, leave it open (with foil sides up) and bake it just like that, at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.

4. Carefully remove salmon from foil, separating the salmon from the skin which will remain stuck to the foil. Place the salmon on a serving plate. Carefully scoop the sauce from around the salmon and pour over the salmon.
