Zesty Jalapeño Citrus Salmon

Healthy Fact of the Day

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart and brain health. It's also rich in high-quality protein and vitamin D, supporting bone health and immune function.



  • 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 oranges, juiced and zested
  • 2 limes, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Orange and lime slices for garnish



  1. In a bowl, whisk together jalapeños, orange juice and zest, lime juice and zest, olive oil, honey, minced garlic, and half of the chopped cilantro to create the marinade.

  2. Place salmon fillets in a shallow dish and pour half of the marinade over them, reserving the other half. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  3. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

  4. Remove salmon from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and swirl to coat the pan.

  6. Place salmon fillets in the skillet, skin-side down, and sear for 3-4 minutes until crispy.

  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  8. While salmon is cooking, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes until slightly thickened.

  9. Remove salmon from the oven and drizzle with the reduced citrus sauce.

  10. Garnish with remaining fresh cilantro, orange slices, and lime wedges.
