Baked Honey Jerk Salmon
Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
Baked honey jerk salmon in foil is cooked to tender, flaky perfection in just 30 minutes with a flavorful jerk and honey lime glaze.
1 large salmon fillet (see note)
Ja Makin Me Crazy rub, to taste
½ cup butter, melted (see note)
Juice of 2 limes (plus one lime, thinly sliced)
4 tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons minced garlic
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and grease a large baking sheet with foil.
Step 2: Lay salmon on foil and season with Ja Makin Me Crazy rub on both sides to taste (remember a little bit goes a long way). Slip lime slices underneath the salmon.
Step 3: Stir together butter, lime juice and honey. Pour mixture over salmon. Fold sides of foil up over the salmon (don't worry if it doesn't cover the salmon completely).
Step 4: Bake for 15-20 minutes. Switch oven to broil and cook another 5 minutes.
Don't stress about the size of your salmon fillet. This recipe is very forgiving and works for one very large salmon, a couple of medium-sized fillets, or even several small individual fillets.
For an even lighter version, you can cut back the butter to 4 tablespoons instead of a half cup (8 tablespoons). Keep in mind though that for a very large salmon fillet like the one used, 8 tablespoons is not a terribly huge amount when divided between 4-6 servings.
