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



Ingredients:



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



Method:



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.

Serve





ENJOY!

  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

  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.

    Best,

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