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


  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
