Description

Easy Maple Chili Lime Salmon is a healthy dinner recipe for any night of the week! This baked salmon uses lime, maple syrup and chili powder for a perfectly sweet and smoky glaze that pairs well with any fruity salsa. Best of all – this clean-eating salmon recipe is ready in 30 minutes!


Ingredients

  • 2 4-6 oz portions boneless, skin on salmon
  • 1 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lime
  • Peach Salsa (or other sweet fruity salsa) for serving (optional but recommended)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. Arrange salmon on the baking sheet skin side down and pat dry with a paper towel. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small mixing bowl combine maple syrup, mustard, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and zest of the lime. Set aside.
  4. Bake salmon for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the top and sides of each salmon with about half of the maple-chili-lime glaze and return to the oven to bake for another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with the remaining glaze. Continue to bake until salmon is cooked through.
  5. Serve with a generous squeeze of fresh lime juice (from the zested lime) and top with fruity salsa.

Notes
