5 Ingredient Spicy Baked Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1 lb wild caught whole salmon fillet
  • 2 Tb. olive oil
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, grated
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and lay the salmon fillet on it. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Whisk the oil, lime zest, and garlic together. Grate the jalapeño and smell for spiciness. If it is very spicy (or you are sensitive to spice) add only half the grated pepper. Otherwise add it all to the oil mixture. Pour the mixture over the salmon fillet and salt the pepper liberally.
  3. Bake for 10-14 minutes, until just cooked through, but not dry. Squeeze lime juice over the top and serve warm.
