Honey Citrus Glazed Salmon with Peach Salsa

We love fish in our house.  Even the boys.  It’s great for you and I have found super easy to make.  Some people are a bit taken back by fish but I promise you it is so easy!!!

To start with, we did not have a great grocery store selection here in Joplin.  Now that the tornado thoroughly screwed things up, we are left with Walmart.  So I use frozen.  If you have a fresh fish counter PLEASE utilize that!  The person behind the counter should be able to tell you when it was caught or if it was previously frozen.    I used a bag of (4) individually wrapped 4 oz fillets.  I thaw them by filling  my sink with about 2 inches of cold water and letting them float in there for a few minutes.  It doesn’t take long.

Items Needed:

  • (4) 4 oz. Salmon Fillets
  • Lemon
  • Honey
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Drizzle a baking dish with Extra Virgin Olive Oil so the fish fillets do not stick.  In a small bowl combine 3 tablespoons of Honey with about 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice.  These measurements are flexible.  Just use enough juice to thin the honey so that it’s not a thick blob.  You don’t want it runny though, you want it to stick to the fish. Finely grate 1 teaspoon of lemon zest into the bowl also.  Only zest the yellow part of the rind, not the white, that part is bitter.  Baste each side with the lemon/honey mixture and season with salt & pepper.  Flip fillets and repeat on opposite side.

Bake for 8-12 minutes or until the center of the fish is opaque and the fish will flake with a fork.  Don’t overbake!

Arrange the fish on a plate and cover with 2 heaping spoonfuls of Peach Salsa, whose recipe can be found HERE!

The honey and lemon in the salsa, along with the sweetness of the peaches compliment the honey/lemon on the salmon!

Enjoy!!
