Simply Spicy Firecracker Salmon

 

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.

Enjoy!

1-2 chopped green onions or chives

  1. Sounds delicious! By the way I want to tell you that We had been in Los Angeles and I think Don tried to contact Richard but he called on our house phone land line number. Richard never got that message. Richards cell phone number is 201 406 5364. Richard never picks up the house phone even if he is around. Hope u are having a beautiful Chanukah.
