Wonderfully Delicious Baked Salmon!

Baked Salmon


Salmon (2-4 serving)
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp sambal oelek
1 tsp garlic powder or 1-2 cloves of garlic paste
Lime juice
Finely chopped coriander leaves
ground pepper
Olive oil


Wash salmon and dry with paper towel and place in a oven safe dish.

Squeeze a little lime juice on the salmon – just enough to lightly coat the fish. Sprinkle a little pepper and if wanted salt.

In a bowl combine mustard, honey, sambal olek, garlic, lime juice (1 tsp or so – depending on your preference) and coriander.

Add olive oil to the mixture – about 4 tbsp (it should be enough so that the mixture is not too liquid and not too thick).

Taste the mixture and adjust to taste – such as if too tarte from lime add a little more honey.

Coat the fish with the mixture.

Bake the fish in a medium heat over until fish is cooked. If the fish coating on the fish is browning, cover with aluminium foil.

Serve hot and enjoy 🙂

  1. also, please tell us what sambal olayk is, where we can get it, what country its from, what can be used as a substituition. there is another mention of a strange ingredient in your chicken salad recipe. no idea where to get that. please give us clueless people some more info. thank you.

    • Thank you for visiting my page.
      To answer your question, Sambal oelek is a chili paste. It it usually used in South East Asian cooking like Indonesian, Malaysian, Singapore. I usually purchase it from my local Chinese or Oriental supermarkets. But where I live they are readily available in most large supermarkets. If you don’t have Sambal oelek, you can use chili sauce you may have in your pantry. Or use chili powder (to your taste). Finely chopped green chilies will work as well.

      For the chicken salad sandwich, I assume you are referring to Ajvar? Ajvar is Eastern European in origin. It is made from red bell pepper. It is similar to a relish. It can be made at home but I usually purchase mine. It can be purchased at European grocery, large supermarkets and even at some Middle Eastern stores. These are based on where I live. I am not certain of availability in other regions for either of these ingredients.

      I appologize for the use of unusual ingredients but I do like to experiment with different flavours and being in a multicultural community, I do have access to a lot of different ingredients. In the future I will try to include a better explanation when I write up the recipes. I do try to provide links to wikipedia or other sites that has an explanation for the products. I am also working on a glossary of items I tend to use.

    • Medium heat usually refers to temperatures of 350F-375F. As for baking time, it will depend on the size of your fish. In my experience it takes about 10-15 minutes. But it can take up to 20 minutes if the fish is thick and you are baking a large quantity. Time may also vary based on your oven as a convection oven will cook faster than a regular conventional oven. Hope this answers your questions. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
