  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

Adjust the amount of jerk seasoning based on your spice preference. You can also grill the salmon instead of baking for a smokier flavor. Serve with a side of steamed vegetables or a refreshing salad for a well-balanced meal.
