Most of my salmon recipes use a teriyaki-type glaze and cook at a high temperature.
This one is quite different.
It starts with a spicy marinade and is cooked at 375 degrees F to get that perfectly soft flakiness and to set the spicy glaze.
I prepared this new recipe for dinner while my son-in-law, Scotty, was visiting and studying nearby. He couldn’t help but comment on how delicious the salmon smelled as it was cooking. The taste didn’t disappoint, either.
This recipe is appropriately named for the fiery color and flavor of this salmon.
1-2 chopped green onions or chives
a small piece of minced fresh ginger or ginger powder
3 cloves garlic, minced or garlic powder
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey, agave or maple syrup
1-2 tablespoons sriracha or hot sauce
1-2 tablespoons lemon or orange juice
1-2 tablespoons mustard
red pepper flakes to taste
Whisk or shake marinade ingredients in a small container or jar. Carefully pour or brush onto salmon. Sprinkle with onions or chives.
Bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes, until fish flakes easily with fork.
