Cooking With Ms Moore : Spicy Sriracha Lime Salmon

Hi babes!

   If you know me, you know I absolutely LOVE salmon! I eat it at least once a week, and I’m always looking for new ways to marinate and cook it. I also love salmon, because its simple to make and its SOO good for you. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D and vitamin B6. It’s also a good  source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein and potassium.

This recipe was super simple to make, and full of flavour. I will warn you now, if you are not a big “spicy-food” fan, only add a little bit of the sauce, or skip it all together! lol I personally like spicy food, so I really enjoyed the punch this sauce gave to the salmon. I am also cutting down on my carb intake, so I ate this with a simple spinach and veggie salad but you could eat it on top of rice, or with steamed veggies.


Ingredients:

  • 3 Salmon fillets

Marinade –

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Sauce –

  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place marinade and salmon fillets in a large zip-lock bag, seal and place in refrigerator for 30 mins-overnight.
  2. In another small bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients except for cilantro. Cover and keep in refrigerator
  3. Remove salmon from bag and discard marinade. Spray a nonstick pan or skillet with cooking spray or lightly coat with olive oil. Cook salmon over medium-high heat 6-8 minutes on each side or until salmon begins to blacken very lightly and is flakey. If salmon has skin on, carefully peel off after cooking and discard.
  4. While salmon is cooking, remove sauce from fridge and heat in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  5. When salmon is cooked, drizzle sauce over salmon and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.


I hope you enjoy this spicy, flavorful, healthy salmon dish πŸ™‚
