Honey-Cilantro Salmon

The first time I tried this recipe was a few years ago. I remember really liking it, so I made it again last night with some fresh, good-looking salmon steaks I picked up. The original recipe is from Allrecipes, but I have changed it quite a bit. First of all, I don't live on a honey farm, so it's a little silly to be using 2 cups of the stuff for a couple pieces of salmon- you're going to end up tossing (or losing through the grill grates, if you grill it) most of it, anyway. I use about 1/3 or 1/2 cup.... I didn't measure.

We had this for dinner last night with herbed brown rice and steamed broccoli. The kids weren't crazy for the salmon, which was wierd because they usually are. My 3-year old loved it, but the older ones deemed it "too sweet".

Honey-Cilantro Salmon
adapted from Allrecipes.com

3 large salmon steaks (1 -2 pounds)
1/3 - 1/2 cup honey
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, rinsed and chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
juice of one lime
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray a 9x13 glass baking dish with cooking spray and lay salmon steaks in it. In a very small saucepan, heat the honey on low, until it is warm and easily stirred. Remove from heat, and add garlic, lime juice, and chopped cilantro. Add salt and pepper. Pour this mixture evenly over salmon steaks, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

The ingredients sound great! I think it's so great that your kids eat fresh fish..My oldest son will eat it but my youngest always tells me it tastes "to fishy"..he wont even eat tuna fish!
