Spicy Salmon

This is a variant of plain Costco Salmon, optionally using Costco’s big bags of single portions of frozen boneless, skinless salmon, based on Wellplated’s Spicy Baked Salmon. I don’t use foil or broil.



  1. Preheat oven to 350° with convection.
  2. Pour olive oil and squeeze lime into a small baking dish.
  3. Rub the salmon in it.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining ingredients.
  5. Bake 15 minutes or until just cooked through.


Try it with fresh salmon. The original recipe recommended wild caught Alaskan, skin on or off, and did not include cayenne.

Other spice options include a generous coating of Sri Lankan roasted curry powder, Moroccan Spice Mix, or Ras el Hanout.
