Ingredients

  • 1 lb salmon fillet with pin bones removed
  • salt to taste for me this is about 1/2 tsp of pink Himalayan

Glaze

  • 1/2 Tb sriracha sauce or a no sugar added hot sauce
  • 1/2 Tb lime juice
  • 1/2 Tb honey

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Sprinkle salmon with salt.
  • Mix glaze ingredients together and spread on salmon. Let marinate for 10-15 minutes.
  • Bake on an oiled baking sheet for 10-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. It should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

Notes

  1. Since the glaze has lime juice in it, I would not marinate this overnight.  The acid could start to "cook" the fish.
  2. Marinate for up to 2 hours ahead, if you happen to have extra time.
  3. Because there is no added fat in the glaze, select a fatty salmon variety with thick white stripes of protein, such as King salmon.  Coho and sockeye have less fat and may turn out dry.
