  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
  • Place the salmon in a foil-lined baking pan.
  • Whisk together the marinade ingredients. Pour over the salmon and pop in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • When ready bake, pop the salmon in the oven and cook for 14 - 17 minutes depending on the thickness of the filets. The salmon should easily flake when you poke it with a fork.
  • Serve immediately with a sprinkle of fresh herbs, scallions or my spicy mango salsa!
