Honey Lime Jalapeno Salmon

Honey Lime Jalapeno Salmon is bursting with sweet and spicy salmon flavor – in just one pan for a delicious, quick healthy dinner! 



Salmon is one of my absolute favorite things to make for dinner. It’s easy, delicious, full of color and flavor – and it consistently comes out fabulously, even when I’m running short on time.

Salmon is also a great staple for Lent for us – especially because it is so quick and simple, and pairs with so many delicious meals!




This salmon is so deliciously easy – it can be done in under 20 minutes, and doesn’t give off any fishy smell whatsoever.

I didn’t really get to eat a lot of fish growing up because my dad is a little skittish about the smell of fish – so we didn’t really have a ton of it at home – which is a shame, because I really really love Salmon.


This recipe pairs perfectly over a salad, in tacos, or served up with rice or vegetables. It’s simple and so easy – it will become one of your favorite dinners in no time!
