  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Trinidad Green Seasoning
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 fresh lemon

Instructions
 

Preparing Salmon

  • Once salmon is thawed, massage 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper into the salmon.
  • Place in ziplocked bag.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of Trinidad Green Seasoning to ziplocked bag and shake to cover all of salmon.
  • Marinade for 2-6 hrs.

Oven-Baked Salmon Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Spray baking sheet generously with cooking spray of choice or olive oil.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of paprika and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to salmon and massage.
  • Squeeze half of a fresh lemon and add used lemon to the baking sheet to bake with salmon.
  • Bake without a cover for 20 minutes.
  • Squeeze lemon once more over salmon.
  • Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt (optional)
  • Rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Broiled Salmon Instructions (8oz - 14oz portion)

  • Set the broiler on high with the rack about 8-10 inches from the top.
  • Lightly spray cooking pan and top and bottom of salmon with cooking spray.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of paprika and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to salmon and massage.
  • Squeeze half of a fresh lemon all over the salmon
  • Broil 9 minutes for medium. 12 minutes for medium-well. 15 minutes for well-done or blackened salmon recipe.
  • Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt (optional)

Air fryer Salmon Instructions (8 oz portion)

  • Set the air fryer to 390 degrees F.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. I make my own cooking spray using an Evo spray bottle as pre-made ones tend to ruin the basket. These work great for all cooking needs.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of paprika and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to salmon and massage.
  • Squeeze half of a fresh lemon all over the salmon
  • Lightly spray the top and bottom of salmon with the cooking spray.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes.
