Spicy Sheet-Pan Salmon
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. salmon, cut into 4 fillets
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1-2 Tbsp. sriracha
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- Preheat oven to 425° F. Coat a baking sheet with ½ tsp. olive oil and place salmon fillets on the pan. Drizzle remaining ½ tsp. olive oil over the top of the salmon.
- In a small bowl, mix together the honey, sriracha and garlic.
- Pour evenly over top of the salmon fillets.
- Bake for 15 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.
- Salmon requires limited cooking time, no matter how you choose to prepare it. Once you take salmon out of the oven or off the grill, it will continue to cook, so avoid overcooking by factoring in this continued cooking time.
- Use a fork to check if salmon is done cooking. If the fish flakes easily, then you can consider your fillet ready to eat! You can also use a food thermometer to check for doneness. If the internal temperature of the salmon is at least 145° F, it is done cooking.
- Salmon, like tuna, can be enjoyed when it’s still on the rare side in the middle. How rare you choose to enjoy your salmon is completely a matter of personal preference, just make sure to cook to an internal temperature of 145° F.
- The white substance that appears on cooked salmon is a protein called albumin. It is harmless and perfectly fine to eat.
