Individual salmon fillets are immersed in a flavorful honey-lime marinade and briefly soaked. Then aligned on a baking sheet, sprinkled with spices, and finished under a hot broiler until just cooked and gently charred. It's flawlessly delicious!
In a small mixing bowl whisk well together light olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Place salmon fillets in a gallon size resealable bag* then pour marinade over salmon (be sure marinade is coating all sides of the salmon pieces), press out excess air from the bag and seal.
Let rest at room temperature 20 minutes to 30 minutes (no longer).
Align oven rack in center of oven. Preheat broiler to high heat for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhie line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with vegetable oil cooking spray.
Remove salmon from marinade and align on baking sheet, leaving some space between each piece. Sprinkle tops evenly with cumin and coriander.
Place salmon in oven (check on it frequently throughout broiling). Broil in preheated oven about 4 minutes then if needed tent with foil to prevent excess browning. Continue to broil about 3 - 6 minutes longer until cooked to desired doneness in center.**
Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro and serve. If you want the salmon a little more tart you can serve with lime wedges for spritzing.
*This can also be marinated in a shallow dish such as a 9 by 9 or 7 by 11. If going this route marinate salmon on one side in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the fridge, flip salmon to opposite side and let marinate at room temperature 20 to 30 minutes longer.
**Cook times are approximate because they will vary based on how hot your broiler gets, how thick salmon fillets are, and desired degree of doneness. I aim for 125 to 130 degrees in center, but keep in mind USDA safe temp is 145.
