Love salmon but are unsure what to flavor it with? Try this chipotle recipe.
Make sure there are no bones in your salmon fillet. You can do this by rubbing your fingers over the fish, against the bones. When you find one, use a pair of pliers to pull it out.
Summary: Chipotle gives your salmon zest that can’t be beat!
- 1 tablespoon chipotle pepper puree
- 1 lime
- 1 salmon fillet (deboned)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Make the marinade by adding the chipotle pepper puree to a bowl, and juice the lime over the puree, and mix.
- Line a baking sheet with a sheet of aluminum foil, then place a wire cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. Place the salmon on the wire rack. This will ensure that the air flows all around the fish, not just over it.
- Coat the top of the salmon with about 2/3 of the marinade, then set the remaining marinade aside for now.
- Roast the salmon for about 15 minutes.
- Add the rest of the marinade to the fish, then continue cooking for another 3-5 minutes.
This goes very well with French bread and a spinach salad.

Want to make your own chipotle pepper puree, as seen in the video? You can get the recipe for that at cookingrecipestv.com. Maybe you have never paid attention to whether or not the salmon you buy is wild or farm raised, but you should. Farm raised salmon is fed grains and cereals, and isn’t pink. The only reason these salmon are pink is because they have red dye injected into their flesh. Yuck!
Plus, wild salmon is much healthier for you than farm raised fish. They contain far more omega three fatty acids, which are wonderful for you. They are also leaner and contain less fat, and they taste better. So, the next time you shop for salmon, be sure to buy only wild salmon. And, when you want to cook it up, use this chipotle recipe and impress your guests or family.
