Hey guys! I hope you had a good weekend! I definitely did, and we were able to get out and take advantage of our beautiful city. We have spurts of beautiful sunny weather in San Diego during random times of the year that make it feel like it’s the middle of summer. Every time this happens I start craving fresh, light meals like fish and crisp salads topped with sweet fruit. This honey-lime salmon and summer salad satisfied that craving perfectly, and it was insanely easy to make! Next time the weather heats up a little bit, I highly recommend you make this meal and pair it with chilled white wine- it’s one of our absolute favorite meals.
For the salmon:
4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, skin of
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons orange juice
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Grease a 9x13x2-inch baking pan.
Heat oven to 400°. Place salmon, skin-side down, in the prepared baking pan. combine the honey, lime juice, and orange juice, stirring until well blended. Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper then spoon the honey and juice mixture over the fillets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
In the salad:
Red leaf lettuce, blackberries, strawberries, avocado, red onion, goat cheese, walnuts (chopped)
For the dressing:
I used Brianna’s Homestyle Blush Wine Vinaigrette, which is one of our all time favorites. However, you could also make your own vinaigrette with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, strawberry jam, onion powder and s&p…that’s what I use when I’m in a pinch!
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!
