1 large salmon fillet
salt and pepper, to taste
½ cup palm shortening, melted
juice of 2 limes (plus one lime, thinly sliced)
4 tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons minced garlic
⅓ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and grease a large baking sheet with foil. Lay salmon on foil and season with salt and pepper on both sides to taste. Slip lime slices underneath the salmon.
- Stir together palm shortening, lime juice, honey, and garlic. Pour mixture over salmon. Fold sides of foil up over the salmon (don’t worry if it doesn’t cover the salmon completely).
- Bake for 15-20 minutes. Switch oven to broil and cook another 5 minutes. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top and serve.
***My husband isn’t a fan of cilantro so we leave this off and my daughter and I have to stay away from dairy so I substitute palm shortening for the butter in the original recipe.
