Just the right portion size; Salmon is high in protein and fiber. Salmon's reputation as a healthy food is largely based on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content. It is normal for 4 ounces of salmon to contain at least 2 grams of omega-3 fats - more than the average U.S. adult gets from all food over the course of several days. This omega-3 fat comes in two forms: EPA and DHA. However, salmon is also rich in other properties, such as vitamin D and selenium, each of which have their own powerful health benefits.
Preheat the oven to 450° F – line large baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy clean-up), then spray non-stick cooking spray on lined baking sheet. If you have a roasting rack, then place the rack on top of foil lined pan.
In medium size bowl combine honey, olive oil, sea salt, chipotle chili powder, garlic and onion powder, paprika and Italian season.
Place the salmon on a plate and spoon the mixture over fillets, spreading it to coat each piece of salmon evenly. Then place each fillet on baking sheet about an inch apart from each other.
Bake salmon for about 15 – 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove from oven and garnish with fresh scallions and serve with lemon slices.
