Salmon with lime & honey sauce

Finally. I have had this dish on the menu for 3 weeks in a row, and every time I was supposed to make it we either ate something else or went out somewhere. This tends to happen every time I have salmon on the menu...weird. I liked the sauce for the salmon and it was definitely flavorful, but I would have preferred a glaze instead. For some reason I like when my salmon is coated with some type of topping or glaze. However, this did taste light and was great for a weeknight summer meal. I served this with baked risotto (recipe coming later) and a side salad.
