Lime Basil Salmon

WIN_20150719_204146Who wants to cook all day when it’s gorgeous outside? Not us. Moving into late summer, we’re all about fast, healthy food here at Crowded Earth Kitchen. Today we have a super easy, nutritious dinner for you! All you need are 25 minutes and 4 ingredients… ready… set… GO!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 salmon fillets (4 – 6 ounces each)

1 lime, sliced very thin

1 tablespoon sugar

8 basil leaves, sliced into thin shreds


Step 1) Grease a baking pan with shallow sides. Place 4 lime slices on the bottom of the pan (these add flavor and will help keep your fish from sticking to the pan).

Step 2) Place a salmon fillet on top of each lime slice on the baking pan. Fish fillets should not be touching each other.

Step 3) Dip one side of remaining lime slices in sugar. Place lime slices, sugar side down, on top of salmon.

Step 4) Bake salmon in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Top with basil shreds and serve immediately.
