I just started using Spanish Smoked Paprika & I am in love with it! My first whiff of it made me think of pairing it with salmon. My son & I loved this dish -- none was left! Simple, fast, easy.

How to Make Mertzie's Melt-in-your Mouth Salmon with Paprika

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut salmon in portions for each guest. I cut in half, as it was 2 of us. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Mix garlic salt, paprika, olive oil in melted butter. (Note: I used a very good garlic salt from Penzey's. If you don't have a high quality, I would advice using sea salt on the salmon first & then adding some garlic to the sauce separately.)
  3. Spray a piece of aluminum foil w/ cooking spray. (Use one large piece of foil for each piece of salmon.) Put a piece of salmon in the foil.
  4. Brush each piece of salmon w/ the butter sauce. If you have any left-over, drizzle over top. Add some lemons & onion slices to each piece of salmon. Fold loosely the foil over to make a foil packet.
  5. Bake for about 15 mins. or until the salmon is done & flaking to your liking. Enjoy!
