  1. Place the oil, lime juice, honey, cilantro, garlic and 1 tsp salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl and stir.
  2. Make a foil tray for the salmon. (Fold foil sides and ends up 2 inches to resemble a cookie sheet with a lip). See photo below. Spray with cooking oil spray.
  3. Cut up your vegetables and place in a medium bowl. Stir the cilantro lime mixture and put HALF on the vegetables. Toss well.
  4. Heat the oven to 400 F or turn on a barbecue grill.
  5. Place the salmon on the foil and place the packet on a baking sheet, pat the salmon dry, season with salt and pepper, spread with the remaining HALF of the cilantro and lime mixture.
  6. Spread the vegetables around the salmon on the baking sheet outside the foil.
  7. Bake in a preheated 400 F oven or on a barbecue grill until just cooked, about 12-16 minutes. Use a digital meat thermometer. Remove the tray from the oven when the salmon 130 degrees in the center.
  8. If the vegetables are not done to your liking, simply transfer the salmon to a plate and return peppers to the oven until roasted to how you’d like.
