Lime, Honey and Sriracha Roasted Salmon

Roasting can be fast and hot and that is exactly what this salmon dish is about. I love it served chilled but the choice is yours.

Serves: 4


4 x 200-gram pieces centre-cut salmon, pin bones removed
1 lime, halved through the stem, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons runny honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
finely grated zest 1 large lime
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon sriracha chilli sauce, or more to taste
1 teaspoon sea salt


Preheat the oven to 200°C fan bake. 

Place salmon on a well-oiled, lipped baking tray and make 1 cut along the length of each piece but not right through to the skin. Tuck slices of lime in each of the cuts.

Glaze: Stir all the ingredients together to make a thick glaze.

Spoon evenly over the salmon. Roast for 6 minutes, then turn the oven to grill and cook for a few more minutes until the tops of the salmon pieces are a good golden colour. Serve the salmon hot, warm or chilled.
