Since we discovered this way to cook salmon, we haven't had it any other way!

"30 minutes is way to long with a 350 degree oven. More like 20 minutes. Since I was feeding my young children I left out the cayanne pepper and it still turned out great. I let it set in the fridge with the spices for about 4 hours before cooking. My 5 year old will hardly ever eat anything, but she LOVED this dish. We served with a fresh salad and corn."

Are you making this? 
500 grams Salmon filets
1 clove Garlic
2 tablespoons Onion
1 1/2 teaspoons Pepper; freshly ground
3/4 teaspooons Paprika
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne
3/4 teaspoon Dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 tablespoons Olive oil

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



Combine all seasoning ingredients and spread over the surface of the salmon. Bake (skin-side down) in a 350 F oven for 20 - 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon.

If you're grilling it, do so over high heat for 10 - 15 minutes depending on thickness. Do not turn the salmon over.


This salmon can also be grilled on the barbecue, but watch for flare-ups!

More detail would be appreciated. The recipe lacks some accuracy and is spicy for the average palate. Also the bake time of 20-30 is too long. 18-20min is the sweet spot IMO otherwise it turns out over cooked and dry. Overall the flavours are nice looking forward to tweaking this myself.

my favorite way to make salmon i always add a spash of white wine. if you dont like a ton of spice dont add the cayenne but me and my man love it with it.

Was a little spicy but for all those spices we did not find it flavourful at all.

It's delicious. It's also easy to tweak if you are serving to folks who like a little less spice, but my family and I love it as it is.

With the skin on, I did not grease the pan, and it stuck which was perfect! The salmon pulled clean off when serving.

I didn't have salmon so I made it with Mahi Mahi. It was so bad, we gave it to the dogs. We like spicy food, but Would not recommend this recipe to anyone. The fish was hard and tasteless.

Really good, but dried peppers added a little something more.

So spicy and delicious! I added an extra clove of garlic and my boyfriend and I (spicy food fans) loved it! I'm not much of a cook and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. Will definitely make this again.
