Salmon with Sriracha, Honey and Lime

IMG_4773

I’ve been throwing the same caption up with the above photo on all of my social media platforms and I’m going to use it here as well because it reeks of truth: I don’t think anyone appreciates grilling barefoot on the deck with a cool pint more than a Canadian who has survived a cruel and merciless winter. (Me).

I love salmon, and it kind of hurts me in the feels when people turn their noses at it. But – I just chalk it up to them having never had a salmon cooked properly because let’s face it: if salmon is overcooked, it sucks.

I’m always trying new salmon recipes since that whole lemon and dill thing is just tired. This recipe is sweet, spicy, savoury, and it only calls for a handful of ingredients. Easy peasy, guys! This one is going right into the “dinner party” archives because it is guaranteed to impress!

  • 2 large salmon fillets

Instructions

  • Mix the Sriracha, honey, lime juice and lime zest in a bowl.
  • Heat grill at medium temperature.
  • Brush olive oil on the top part of salmon and place it face down (skin side up) onto a square of aluminum foil. (If you have a skinless fillet, judge which side is face up - it's easy to tell).
  • Place on the grill and cook, cover closed, for five minutes.
  • After five minutes, carefully flip the fillets face up, and brush with the Sriracha mixture.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds if desired, close grill, and cook for approx. 20 minutes or until the salmon flakes away perfectly with a fork.
  • Before serving, garnish with pea shoots (optional)

    Dana, I love salmon, Sriracha, and this recipe. Winter, not so much. I’m a Florida girl who moved to NH 3 yrs ago and thought I could handle the cold. Boy was I wrong because I officially lost my mind this past winter! Visited Canada (Montreal) for the first time last September and loved it so much I told hubby I wanted to move there. He replied, you couldn’t handle the winter. Lol! Guess I’ll leave the Canadian winters to you :)

      Thanks, Karrie!

      I’m moving to North Carolina later this year, so I’m looking forward to leaving the Canadian winters to the others. Haha. No more of this crap for me!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)

    Hy Dana, my husband and I we can understand you very well when you talk about the brutal Canadian winters… :-). Anyway, your salmon looks fantastic, and I bet it tastes as well. We love salmon and we cook it often, so we’re definitely going to try your version!
