Brown Sugar Lime Baked Salmon

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 3 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp lime zest
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, adjust to taste*
  • 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets, skin-on or skinless
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Lime wedges for serving


In a small mixing bowl stir together brown sugar, lime juice, lime zest, butter, garlic and cayenne pepper.

Place salmon fillets in a dish. Spoon and spread lime mixture over tops and sides of salmon if using skin-on salmon, if using skinless spread mixture over top and bottom of salmon (use up all of the mixture). Let marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Line a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with Reynolds Kitchens Unbleached Parchment Paper. Place salmon on parchment, leaving space between fillets. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake in preheated oven until salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 12 - 15 minutes (cook time will vary based on thickness of fillets).

Sprinkle with cilantro and serve warm with lime wedges for spritzing over salmon. Serve over Coconut Rice if desired.
