Carol's Story

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.


salmon fillets ( 4 -5 ounces each skinless)
3 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 tsp
sea salt ( or any course salt)
4 Tbsp
chipotle chili powder
1 Tbsp
garlic powder
1 Tbsp
onion powder
1 tsp
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
garlish - fresh scallions and lemon slices

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

An update - made this again last night, using 3 teaspoons of chipotle chili powder instead of tablespoons; what a difference. The subtle nuances of the spice blend, the sweetness of the honey...this dish sang. My family loved it. 'Reminded me of something Emeril would do. Thank you, Carol! -This is a keeper!

Made this tonight and wowzah! -Used 3 Tbsp. chipotle pepper and it was WAY too spicy for us. Overpowered anything else going on (including the fish). Cooking directions were spot on. 'Going to lower it to 3 or 4 tsp. next time.

Thanks for responding. I did only use 3 tbsp and added more olive oil based on another comment. It never thinned out for me. Think I may try adding some lime juice to thin out the left over paste.
