Cilantro-Lime Avocado Honey Salmon



Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1 lb salmon

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1/4 avocado

  • 1 tablespoon red onion, minced

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

  • 1 garlic cloves minced


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.

  • Pat dry salmon. 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.

  • In a small bowl, combine honey, lime juice, chopped cilantro, avocado, red onion, and garlic. Mix to combine. Spread this mixture over the salmon.

  • Do not cover salmon with foil, leave it open (with foil sides up) and bake it just like that, at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.

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