I doubt there is anyone in this world who loves salmon more than I do. My favorite way eat salmon is with jerk seasoning and done in the oven. The flavor is amazing and the omega 3 fatty acids in salmon are excellent for your health. Now I know jerk seasoning can be quite spicy for those who aren’t accustomed to spicy food so I developed this recipe as a way to tone down the heat while still retaining all of the flavor. Trust me, this sweet & spicy salmon is a must try!
1.5 lb of salmon filets
1 tsp of all purpose seasoning
1 tsp of seafood seasoning (old bay is fine)
1 tsp of dry jerk seasoning
2 tbsp of wet jerk seasoning
For the sauce:
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp of finely chopped red onion
1 tbsp bbq sauce (i prefer sweet baby rays)
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp water
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. You may want to bake your salmon on a baking tray or in a large dish. Start by adding the all purpose, seafood, and jerk seasoning (both wet and dry) to the salmon and massaging it in. Allow your salmon to marinate for approx 30 minutes. Now place it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes uncovered. Once the time is done, remove it and set it to the side. You’ll make your sauce and pour it on top of the salmon. In a small sauce pan, heat your oil for 2 minutes. Add the onion and minced garlic, and sauteé for 1 minute. Next, add your bbq sauce, honey, water, and stir for another minute. Now add your parsley. Quickly stir for a few seconds and pour it on top. Place it back into the oven uncovered for another 5 minutes and remove. Enjoy!
