Lime Garlic Butter Salmon

I get questions from readers looking for ways to cook salmon.

Don’t be intimidated by it.

Salmon is a common food you will find on our weekly meal plan- we have it a couple of times a month.

This is a baked salmon recipe that is super simple. You could also prepare this recipe in foil packets and pop it on the grill.

Ingredients:

  • 6 small salmon fillets
  • 2-3 T melted butter OR some spray butter
  • 2 limes, juiced OR a bottle of lime juice (you’ll use less than 1/4 c )
  • minced garlic (I used the jarred stuff- about 2 T)

Place your salmon fillets on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper or foil.

Pour melted butter over each fillet, or use spray butter and give each fillet a couple of shots.

Squeeze lime juice over each fillet.

Smear some minced garlic over each fillet.

Pop the salmon in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.

My kids like their salmon well done. Once it is a light brown I remove it from the oven.

Plate it up and dinner is done. My kids love salmon with couscous and a steamed veggie.

    We LOVE salmon. I don’t buy it enough because of the expense… but I think I need to figure out what else I forgo in order to buy it more often! If you love salmon, you need to try Penzey’s spices (they have stores in various places but you can also buy it online) Fox Point seasoning— you could add it to this recipe and it would take it over the top!! (I love Fox Point for lots of things but my favorite use is for salmon -or any fish really!)

      Kelly, what I love about salmon is it cooks fast and it really is very versatile. Bake it, grill it, stove top cook it, you can even crockpot it!

      Thanks for reading.
