I never used to like salmon, but now I feel like I could eat it every single day. It’s so versatile and the options are endless when it comes to herbs, seasonings, flavors, and toppings. Honey and lime is one of my favorite combos for this fish. Sweet and sour, with a bit of spice from the red pepper flakes. This is a great meal to meal prep with, as it makes a ton of leftover veggies that you can use with other meals!

I use the wild-caught frozen salmon from Trader Joe’s usually – I cook directly from frozen and it’s usually ready in 15-18 minutes (with 2 mins on broil at the end). For fresh salmon, it would probably be ready in about 8 minutes.

  • 4 tbsp olive or avocado oil, divided
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 2 sweet potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 2 salmon filets (see notes above for which kind I like)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 limes (2 juiced, one cut for garnish)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 2 tsp salt, divided
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Add cauliflower and sweet potatoes to two foil lined baking sheets. Toss cauliflower with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp of salt, and the cumin. Toss sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp of salt, chipotle powder, and cinnamon. Put sweet potatoes in the oven and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk 1 tbsp olive oil, the honey, 1/2 tsp salt, and the red pepper flakes. Place salmon skin side down on a foil lined baking sheet, and pour the sauce over top. Use a spoon or spatula to spread it evenly on the fish.
  • When the timer goes off, keep the sweet potatoes in the oven and add the cauliflower. Set the timer for another 10 minutes. When that goes off, add the salmon to the oven and set the timer one last time for 15 minutes.
  • Sautee some kale with the remaining olive oil and salt over medium heat for a few minutes.
  • When the timer goes off, remove the veggies and set the oven on broil for 1-2 minutes to give the salmon a nice crisp.
  • Arrange your bowls with the kale, cauliflower, potatoes, salmon, lime wedge, and avocado chunks. Add an extra drizzle of honey over the salmon. Enjoy!
