Sriracha Lime Salmon

As I was telling some of the girls at work, I needed to post some real food on this blog… Don’t need y’all thinking all we ever eat at our house is dessert! 😜 This was another Pinterest find and success. The recipe is intended just to be used as a drizzle on baked salmon, but I prefer to use it as a marinade and grill it because it IS summer after all. A great high protein dinner option!

Ingredients:
About 1 lb salmon fillet, skin removed
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp sriracha
Juice and zest of 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp sea salt

Directions:
In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine your maple syrup, sriracha, salt, lime juice and zest. Whisk or use a fork to combine.

Pour over salmon in Tupperware/a coverable dish of your choosing. Allow to marinate for about 30 minutes. (Much longer and the salt starts cooking the salmon, and it gets flaky and difficult to handle.)

Heat grill to high heat and coat grill grates lightly with oil or cooking spray. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
