Servings 6 -8 servings


  • 1 large wild Alaskan salmon fillet approx 3 pounds

Wet Rub

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • zest of one lime
  • 1 tsp EACH salt, chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp EACH smoked paprika, onion powder, dried oregano, pepper
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a large jelly roll pan with foil that extends 2” past the pan edge on each long side (so you can fold the sides up). Lightly spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place salmon in the center of the foil skin side down.
  • Whisk all the Wet Rub ingredient together in a medium bowl. Pour rub on salmon and evenly rub all over the top. Fold up all the sides of the foil snugly around the salmon (but don’t cover salmon). Let salmon rest 15-30 minutes to come to room temperature (you can make the mango salsa during this time).
  • Bake salmon uncovered at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes (depending salmon thickness), then broil 3 minutes.
  • Garnish salmon with fresh lime juice and mango salsa. Season with salt to taste.
