SLOW ROASTED SALMON TOPPED WITH CHILI POWDER

What a beautiful day; this is what Spring is all about. I had all the windows open, curtains blowing in the breeze, and a sweet 74 degrees. It was too pretty to be inside. I love sitting outside and letting the sun warm my skin. It’s so rejuvenating! So a quick dinner was essential. This one could not be quicker or easier.

Our neighbors came over yesterday for a glass of wine and a chat. She loves to cook as I do. Naturally our conversation turned to food. She let me in on her method for slow roasting salmon. Her choice of seasonings was different from mine. As she said, you could use anything and it would still be good. It is definitely about the slow roasting.

If you haven’t discovered non-stick, aluminum foil, you need to purchase and give it a try. You can thank me later! I used it to line a half sheet baking pan. I pre-heated my oven to 300 degrees. I brought a large piece of salmon to room temperature. Then I lightly coated it with olive oil. Generously, it was salted and peppered. It was cooked for 20 minutes. It came out perfectly moist and tender. If you like your fish a little more well done, add an additional 10 minutes. Once out of the oven I generously sprinkled chili powder over the entire fillet.

This would be perfect with rice, or a thin sliced potato and any green vegetable. I chose to make Zoodles (spiralized zucchini noodles) with a smoky tomato sauce. It was a nice compliment to the chili topped salmon.
