Baked Salmon

  • 2 salmon steaks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 slices fresh ginger thinly sliced, large slices

Spicy Yogurt Dip

  • 3 tablespoons yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce


  • Place some aluminum foil in a casserole dish with enough to cover the salmon around the edges.
  • In a small glass bowl, melt the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave.
  • Add the pepper, honey, soy sauce, and the juice from the lime into the melted butter and stir.
  • De-seed the jalapeno, finely chop, and combine into the butter mixture.
  • Add the salmon to the casserole dish and drizzle over the mixture.
  • Lay the ginger slices on top of the salmon steaks.
  • Cover with the foil and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • When ready to cook, preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Take the salmon straight from the refrigerator to the oven and cook for around 20 to 22 minutes. The salmon will be firm to the touch when cooked through.
  • To make the spicy yogurt dip, simply combine the yogurt and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  • Serve the salmon immediately with the dip on the side.
