Broiled Honey-Lime Salmon

"There are SO many ways to prepare salmon, and yet I'm always open to a new recipe. Salmon seems to be the most popular fish right now, so it's nice to have plenty of new ideas to change things up a bit. To keep this a guilt-free meal, serve with some steamed broccoli and brown rice."

Ready In:




  • Preheat broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place fillets (skin-side down) on the baking sheet and sprinkle evenly with the garlic pepper. Place baking sheet under broiler and broil for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, for the glaze, heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in honey, lime zest, lime juice and soy sauce. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven. Brush or spoon glaze evenly on the fillets. Return the baking sheet to the oven and broil for 4-7 minutes more or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove from oven. Sprinkle salmon with cilantro (if desired) and serve.

I didn't start cooking until my early 20's, even though I come from a family of accomplished and admired home cooks. While I grew up watching my Italian grandmother in the kitchen, I remained uninterested in trying anything on my own. As a young lady, I was known for being particularly ignorant in the kitchen, with no idea how to even make a hot dog! All this changed, however, when I got engaged. I realized it was time to let my inherent talents out of the bag. At the time, the New York Times had a weekly column called The 60-Minute Gourmet by Pierre Franey. Each week, I would follow these recipes diligently, and taught myself to cook that way. From there, I began to read cookbooks and consult with relatives on family recipes. At my ripe old age now, I feel I know enough to put together a very pleasing meal and have become accomplished in my own right. Having an Irish father and an Italian mother, I'm glad I inherited the cooking gene (and the drinking one too!). One thing I have learned is that simpler is always better! I always believe cooking fills a need to nurture and show love. After being widowed fairly young and living alone with my dog and cats, I stopped cooking for awhile, since I really had no one to cook for. I made care packages for my grown son occasionally, and like to cook weekly for my boyfriend, so I feel like I am truly back in the saddle!!
