My friend Candice is someone who will send me a text or call me up and say, “Hey, I’m coming to get away for a few days. Is that cool?” and she’ll come! She’s a great guest because she enjoys alone time when I’m at work or I have already planned events, and she is great to spend time with! I think that, even though we are very different in many ways, we could live together and it would be a good thing for both of us. Perhaps one day….
On her last visit Candice and I arrived home late on a week night and were HUNGRY (verging on HANGRY) and so I knew I needed to pull together something quickly. I knew I had a slab of salmon from the farmer’s market and my spice rack is always stocked with great items. So I made this and DANG! It was GOOD! I hope that you enjoy this one as much as we did (and continued to enjoy on salads and such the following days). Until your return Candice!
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
juice of 1 clementine
1 1/2 teaspoons dried ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 1/2 pounds skin-on salmon fillets (I used 1 full side salmon filet)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
Mix the coconut oil, juice, ginger, cumin, coriander, paprika, salt and cayenne in a small bowl to form a paste.
Place the salmon on a broiler baking pan with skin- side down and massage the spice sauce over the salmon.
Place the salmon in the oven, baking for about 12 minutes. Check the salmon – you want it perfectly done – not over or under cooked 🙂
