I usually cook salmon when I am trying to be healthy and when I am sick of chicken………… Somehow it always ends up that I eat a few bites and give the rest to our great dane Scout (he LOVES salmon). I don’t know if it’s the texture, the idea of fish, or the color but for some reason I am not swooning over the pink swimmer like everyone else is. Self magazine sends me healthy recipes every now and then and of course I cringed when I saw that the main recipe was a salmon dish. Well, I was trying to be healthy, again, and I decided to try this one out and I actually devoured the entire thing! I hope you guys try it out, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe featured in Self, enjoy!
- Juice and zest of 1/2 lime
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 1/2 tsp sriracha sauce
- 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
- 1 1/4 lbs pounds salmon fillet, skin removed
- 2 Tbsp coarsely chopped cilantro
Heat oven to 425°. In a bowl, whisk together juice, zest, syrup, sriracha and salt. Place salmon in a baking dish lined with parchment paper; pour lime-maple mixture over top. Roast salmon until cooked through and flaky, 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve.
