Baked Citrus Salmon

I like this recipe because it’s simple, it looks appetizing on the plate, it tastes good, and because it’s salmon…

There’s a kick to the blend of ingredients in the paste, not too hot, with a touch of sweetness too.  It’s easy to whip up and good for any night of the week.

This is a delicacy you don’t have to feel guilty about! 

Baked Citrus Salmon


2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons dried dill weed

1 tablespoon chives, chopped

1 tablespoon ancho chile pepper

Salt, to taste

1 lemon, sliced

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

Non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl.

Place fillets in a large baking dish that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray.

Divide lemon mixture equally and spread over salmon.

Top fillets with a couple of lemon slices.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.




  1. Pam, This salmon entree looks really good! The question is why haven't we begun cooking fish at home? Once in awhile we'll cook a pre-prepped ready for the oven fish entree for dinner...but we've never gotten comfortable cooking fish dishes from scratch, even though most preparations are simple. We have to get over our uncertainty and get 'er done! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  2. Dear Pam, I love salmon and this is a very nice recipe. I like the added heat a bit. Have a beautiful day. Blessings dear. Catherine

  3. would you believe that I love fish .. (white fish)and I don't like Salmon. I bet your recipe would be good with my favorite Talapia too.

  4. Looks delicious Pam - I think you've achieved the oven version of blackened salmon.

  5. Looks yummy Pam. We love salmon and are always on the lookout for new recipes.

  6. I'm with Sam! We love salmon and I have a file just for it. I'll be adding this.

    Yes, go Bears! The Baker is out of town (out of the country, actually) so Oliver and I are tailgating it in the den.


  7. aww you always salmon amazing!!!
    Love your recipes:)

  8. looks so tasty! Sam and I have baked Salmon a couple of times in the past two weeks. This is a new thing for us.
    What kind of Salmon do you buy? Our first salmon was good, the second was not as good!!

  9. Salmon is one of my favorite fishes! Actually most favorite! And there never will be to many ways to prepare it :)

  10. Thanks to all of you!
    Shug, the stores here sell Atlantic salmon, sometimes I can find wild Alaskan salmon, which is probably better.

  11. Damn delicious and comforting citrusy salmon!!!
    great job my friend....

  12. Delicious! We just bought some salmon, and we're going to try this!

  13. I could eat salmon every day -- I think -- and this looks so easy and good. I'm keeping an eye out for a good sale and I'll be back to try this recipe. Thanks!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
