Lime- and Honey-Glazed Salmon with Rice and Broccoli

IMG_1829I got a free subscription to Bon Appetit with my new Bon Appetit cookbook.  I immediate set to work tearing out recipes and completely ignoring all articles.  On the list of things to try is: wild rice and mushroom stuffing, sausage and lentils with spinach, pork tenderloin stir-fry with tangerines and chili sauce, and this salmon recipe.  Being that I had both cilantro and broccoli in my box and rice in the pantry, this seemed like an easy and relatively cheap dinner.  

I was very pleased with this recipe.  The salmon was moist and flavorful.  I added at least twice as much cilantro as suggested (only because I have so much at home) and I still thought that it didn’t dominate the dish.  If anything, I thought the lime was a bit too much.  It was fine on the fish, but it ran off onto the rice and veges where it overpowered the chicken broth flavor.  Next time I’ll add a little less lime juice or more honey. 

The best part of the meal is the lack of dirty dishes.  IMG_1826

Everything is cooked in the same casserole.  The meal looks fancy, but it couldn’t be easier to make.  I’ll definitely save this recipe and add it to my collection.  I don’t usually make salmon for various reasons, but this will be my new go to recipe.

You can find the recipe here.
