Easy Agave and Lime Salmon Recipe

Easy gluten-free salmon with agave and lime.

Don't feel like cooking? Keep some wild caught salmon on hand and you almost won't have to. Got limes and agave? Smile. Salmon recipes don't get any easier than this. This is almost not cooking- which makes it a perfect recipe for a lazy summer supper.

We served our salmon with grilled veggie kebabs- another one of my easy summer staples. I grill my vegetable skewers on our handy Grilleration Forman grill because we don't have an outdoor grill. Hard to believe, I know. How can we live without a proper grill? And in New Mexico, for goddess sake! It's tricky, truth be told. If you saw our little casita you would understand. There's really no proper spot for a grill- or room to store it for the winter, now that you mention it. Yes, we have winters here in northern New Mexico (weeks of zero degree mornings). And only two closets.

Two. Very. Small. Closets.

Some days I feel like we are camping in the middle of a great big sand box.

Easy Agave and Lime Salmon Recipe

We bake this recipe in foil packets- an easy way to keep your meal gluten-free- especially when sharing an outdoor grill.

Ingredients:

4 serving sized pieces of wild caught salmon
1 red onion, sliced
4 scallions, sliced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped

For the sauce:

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup raw organic agave nectar
Fresh lime juice from two large limes
A tiny, secret pinch of cinnamon- don't tell

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Tear off eight pieces of foil; two for each piece of salmon. Place one serving of salmon on one piece of foil. Season with a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

Combine the olive oil, agave, lime juice and touch of cinnamon in a glass measuring cup. Pour the sauce all over the salmon pieces.

Sprinkle the salmon with onions, scallions and garlic. Place the remaining pieces of foil on each serving and fold the edges to create a packet.

Bake in a preheated oven for roughly 20 minutes, till it flakes easily- but is not dried out.

Leave the closet organization for another day. Pour yourself a glass of Elise's refreshing Limeade with a Touch of Mint. Read another chapter in the new Augusten Burroughs' Wolf At The Table.


See? Wasn't that easy?

Serves 4.
