Salmon with Strawberry Salsa

Feels elegant but takes just 20 minutes and minimal effort. Perfect for summer weeknights and entertaining!


For the Salmon:

  • 3-4 salmon filets about 1 pound
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • pinch kosher salt

For the Salsa:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups diced strawberries about 12 ounces
  • 1/2 jalapeño stem and seeds removed, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1-3 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1-2 teaspoons lime juice to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place the salmon on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment or foil.
  • Brush salmon very lightly with honey, then squeeze lime juice and sprinkle kosher salt on top of each piece. Roast salmon for 10-12 minutes, just until cooked through. (It should reach at least 130 degrees F and flake easily when touched with a fork.) Remove salmon when done and set aside.
  • While salmon cooks, make the salsa. Combine strawberries, jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Taste and add more pepper, lime, or salt to taste. If the salsa needs more sweetness, add 1/2 teaspoon or more of honey.
  • Top roasted salmon with generous spoonfuls of salsa and serve right away.


  • This salsa has kick from jalapeño, onion, and lime. Prefer something sweeter? Top salmon with this balsamic strawberry pineapple salsa instead.
