So this is a very simple recipe that I got from SELF magazine, which included a feature on Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook: "It's All Good." Of course, they indicate in the recipe that you can buy the book to get Gwyneth's personal sriracha sauce recipe, but I'm good with the rooster. This had a nice flavor to it and wasn't overly spicy. I might opt to marinade the salmon in this for a bit before cooking. But I like my food like I like my men...muy caliente.
Salmon with Sriracha Sauce (serves 4)
- Juice and zest of 1/2 lime
- 1 TB maple syrup
- 1 1/2 tsp sriracha sauce
- 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
- 1 1/4 lbs salmon fillet, skin removed
- 2 TB coarsely chopped cilantro
Heat oven to 425°.
In a bowl, whisk together juice, zest, syrup, sriracha and salt.
Place salmon in a baking dish lined with parchment paper; pour lime-maple mixture over top. Roast salmon until cooked through and flaky, 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve.
I served this with asparagus and the orzo spinach salad I made last week. I'm practically making that salad once a week now. It's awesome.
