3 pepper baked salmon
I made this recipe a while back, forgot about it and then tried it again recently. Even though it says 3 pepper, it's not super spicy.
I guess as we move towards winter, with grey skies, I am beginning to crave more spicy food. With black pepper, chilli powder, and ancho pepper, garlic and olive oil, this gave a nice kick to the smooth salmon. We frequently bake salmon, and this recipe is easy, healthy and filling. I am always trying out new marinades and this was one of the trial recipes which clicked. This goes especially well with salad or even simple dal and rice.
2-3 Salmon fillets (you can even try it with salmon steaks)
1/2 tspoon black pepper,
1/2 tspoon chilli powder
1/2 tspoon ancho pepper
1 tbspoon olive oil
1 tspoon garlic
salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients and lather the salmon fillets with the marinade. Set it aside for 30-45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325 deg F and cook the salmon for 15-20 minutes till it's completely cooked.
