Salmon with Limonana Sauce on a plate

Salmon with Limonana Sauce (Lemon-Mint)

This marinated salmon is flavored with olive oil, mint, and lemon juice, then grilled or baked to perfection. Each ingredient is essential and offers something different to create the best-tasting salmon. Salmon can be purchased in an entire fillet or in portions. Both can easily be baked or grilled.

  • 4 pieces 6 oz (170 grams each) salmon fillets (about 1-inch, 2 cm thick)

For the sauce:

  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons mint leaves chopped
  • 4 tablespoons (60 grams) honey
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients.
  • Add the salmon and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Let it soak in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes up to 24 hours. The longer you marinate the salmon, the tastier it will get.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • Cover the baking dish with parchment paper and place the salmon with the skin facing down.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until salmon easily flakes with a fork ( internal temperature of 145°F/63°C ).
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
