Sriracha Salmon

This is a spicy way to cook salmon, adapted from Self Magazine’s recipe feature from Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest: It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great.  I left off the cilantro and added lemon, ginger and a tiny bit of olive oil mayonnaise so that the sriracha wouldn’t overpower.  I served the salmon with roasted brussels and corn for an easy two pan dinner that takes less than 30 minutes.

What to buy (serves 2):

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and 1/2 lemon sliced for serving with the salmon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 salmon fillets

What to do:

  • combine lemon juice, sriracha, ginger, mayo and maple syrup
  • sprinkle salt and pepper on salmon fillets in a baking dish and pour marinade over top
  • marinate for a few hours in the fridge (0r overnight)
  • heat oven to 375°
  • sprinkle with more pepper  and roast salmon until cooked through and flaky, 15-20 minutes
  • serve with lemon slices
