Grilled Honey Salmon

Looking for a good source of omega-3? Omega-3 is a class of fatty acids commonly found in certain fish oils including salmon and other cold-water fish. It is believed to lower cholesterol in the blood and also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. The natural richness of salmon and its high amount of Omega-3 makes it a great choice for a healthy meal without the unhealthy fat. By stuffing a mixture of fresh herbs into the fillets, through a pocket, the fish is infused with intense flavors.



  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 2 scallions
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Wild salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • 1 1/3 cups cooked edamame
  • Lime wedges

Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Oil the grill grates. Chop the cilantro and scallion into small pieces and mix in the oil and ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Cut two 3-inch long slits through the skin lengthwise on the bottom of the salmon fillets, about halfway into the salmon. Evenly stuff the slits with the herb mixture. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Stir together the lime juice, soy and honey until smooth. Place the salmon, skin side up on the grill and cook until well marked (3 to 4 minutes). Turn the salmon and continue to cook. Brush the sides with the sauce, until the fish is cooked through. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle the fillet with the sesame seeds. Serve with edamame and lime wedges.
