A simple marinade of soy sauce, lime, honey and garlic adds tons of flavor to salmon with ease. Just a few ingredients make this quick and tasty recipe perfect for a busy weeknight. Serve with brown rice or quinoa and a green salad.
Stir tamari (or soy sauce), lime juice, honey, sesame oil and garlic together in a small bowl. Place salmon pieces and 3 tablespoons of the tamari mixture in a large sealable plastic bag. (Reserve remaining tamari mixture for sauce). Marinate the salmon in the refrigerator, turning frequently, for 20 minutes.
Preheat broiler to high and position rack in the upper third of oven. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat the foil with cooking spray. Remove the salmon from the bag and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle any remaining marinade from the bag over the salmon and then sprinkle with salt. Broil until the salmon is just cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with the reserved tamari sauce.

This was good but not great. I made it exactly as per the recipe. My husband and I thought it needed a little more flavor. He wanted some sort of sauce as well. But it was moist and tender.
