This Spicy Baked Salmon Recipe is made with fresh salmon, Tajin, honey, garlic powder and baked to perfection.


  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • 2 tablespoon Tajin seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Lime slices


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Tajin seasoning and garlic powder.
  3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with olive oil.
  4. Place the salmon fillet on the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Brush the honey over the top of the salmon fillet.
  6. Sprinkle the Tajin and garlic powder mixture over the top of the honey. Place thinly cut lime slices on top of your salmon.
  7. Bake the salmon for 10-15 minutes, or until it is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Squeeze a little lime juice on the salmon. 


  • Use fresh salmon: Fresh salmon will have a better texture and flavor than frozen salmon. Look for salmon fillets that are firm, glossy, and smell fresh.
  • Don't overcook the salmon: Overcooking can cause the salmon to become dry and tough. Bake the salmon just until it flakes easily with a fork, usually about 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet.
  • Use high-quality spices: The flavor of the dish will largely depend on the quality of the spices used. Use fresh and high-quality spices for the best flavor.
  • Use aluminum foil: Covering the baking dish with aluminum foil can help prevent the salmon from drying out and keep it moist.
  • Let it rest: After baking, let the salmon rest for a few minutes before serving. This will allow the juices to distribute evenly throughout the fish and make it more flavorful.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs: Fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, or dill can add a pop of color and freshness to the dish. Chop them up and sprinkle them on top of the salmon just before serving.
  • Serve with a side dish: Spicy Baked Salmon goes well with a variety of side dishes, such as rice, quinoa, roasted vegetables, or a simple green salad.
