Ingredients

  • 4 (6 oz) salmon filets, skin on
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine all of the spices in a bowl. Add the oil and mix to form a paste.
  • Add salmon, tossing to coat and let marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Place salmon on baking sheet, skin-side down. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the salmon is flaky when pressed with a fork. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon.

Notes

  • Use wild salmon when possible. It is healthier for you and just tastes better.
  • You know the salmon is done when it is opaque and easily flakes.
  • If you want some heat, add a ½ tsp of chili powder.
