Chipotle Lime Salmon

I will be honest, I am not a fish person and really haven't tried hard to find recipes.  Dean, though, loves fish and asks for it often (he is actually eating sardines from a can as I am writing this).  I decided to make some salmon for him one night when he was going to be late coming home from work.  Since I had already eaten dinner, I did not try this dish (funny how that worked out, right).  He loved it!  So, I told him I would make it again really soon and I would actually try it next time.  :)

Chipotle Lime Salmon
1 lb salmon, cut into 4 fillets
1-2 T. olive oil
2 limes, sliced in half
1 t. celtic sea salt
1 t. chipotle powder

-Preheat oven to 500º
-Rinse salmon, pat dry and place on metal baking sheet
-Rub each fillet with olive oil
-Squeeze juice from one-half lime onto each fillet
-Sprinkle fillets with salt and chipotle, then place half lime on top of each fillet
-Turn down oven temperature to 275º
-Place salmon in oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, depending on how well done you like your fish


  1. That looks good, I might have to surprise my hubby with these.

  2. On the contrary, I loved salmon so much. This is great recipe, thanks for sharing!
