How to Make Spicy Baked Salmon

  • In a flat bowl, mix all the ingredients except the salmon fillet and oil.
  • Slide in the fish pieces in the mixture and coat the pieces well.
  • Marinade the fish for 15-30 minutes in a refrigerator.
  • Set the oven at 350 degrees Celsius.
  • Cut several pieces of aluminium foil (5 inch by 5 inch) and spray oil on them.
  • Place the marinated salmon pieces at the centre of the foils (skin side down). Pick two opposite sides of the foils and fold them three times creating a nice little pocket.
  • Repeat the procedure with the other two sides. Make sure you leave enough space to allow the fish to cook in its own steam.
  • Once the oven is preheated, place the fish evenly in an oven-safe baking dish and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Turn off the oven and let the fish stay for another 2-3 minutes so that the flavours blend.
  • Serve hot with rice and any side dish.
