Simple Glazed Salmon

Thursdays around here are known as "Salmon Thursday." This was implemented earlier this spring in an attempt to add more fish to our diet. We both enjoy fish and I try to remember to cook it often, but hadn't made it a "regular" until recently. The recipes are varied based on what I feel like making, or what we have to go along with the (usually) salmon. Occasionally a different fish will sneak in, but for the most part we stick to the yummy, wild Alaskan salmon.

Simple Glazed Salmon

Salmon filet - steaks would work here too, but I tend toward the filets because that's what I know
3 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
3 Tbsp honey (jazz it up with an orange honey or another flavor you like)
2 Tbsp evoo
generous pinch of brown sugar

Mix everything but the salmon together in a shallow dish. Add salmon flesh side down and marinate in the refrigerator approximately 30 minutes. Remove baking dish from refrigerator and let come to room temperature while your oven heats.  Preheat oven to 450 °. Bake salmon in a foil lined baking dish (don't skip this part! you'll thank me later!) Bake about 15 minutes or until done. Baste occasionally with marinade/glaze.

This turned out so yummy. Tender and flaky, all glazed and a little gooey. Served alongside roasted whole asparagus spears and sweet potatoes.
