For the Salmon

For the Strawberry Salsa

  • 1 cup red onions — chopped
  • 1 cup yellow bell pepper — chopped
  • 2 cups strawberry — chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro — chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice


  1. Preheat the oven at 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl place salmon and pour 4 tbsp of lime juice. Leave the salmon to ‘cure’ for 5 mins.
  3. In a small bowl add paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, coriander, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper and mix well.
  4. Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down, and rub each salmon fillet with the spice mixture.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes (the time will depend on the thickness of the salmon fillets and the power of the oven.)
  6. While the salmon fillets are in the oven, prepare the strawberry salsa by tossing all the salsa ingredients together in a bowl.
  7. Remove the salmon fillets from the oven and let it cool down before top them with the strawberry salsa. Enjoy!
