Dinner Last Night: Baked Honey Cilantro Lime Salmon

Dinner last night was delicious and soooo incredibly easy, I must share with you!  Honey Cilantro Lime Salmon courtesy of Creme de la Crumb.  The original recipe calls to bake the salmon in foil, but skipped this step because foil + food is not good for our bodies.  But easy peasy, parchment substituted as a nice non-stick base just fine.  

The flavor was delicious!  I wasn't sure how honey would balance out with the fish + herbs, but it was subtle and gave it a pleasant sweetness.  Though truth be told, my kids were quite skeptical of the "green stuff" on top of their salmon.  We typically bake our salmon with a Sriracha, sesame oil, and olive oil marinade, and apparently this was too visually out of left field, protesting abound!  However, once we sold that there was honey in the sauce, it got at least one child willing and on board to eat the dinner.  Celebrate those small victories when you see them, amiright?

Ultimately, this will was delish and will be becoming more of a regular dinner in our home, if only to just desensitize my children to the green on top of food...

Happy eating!
