Sunset Salmon

Sunset Salmon

Bright, spicy, and delicious.

I can't take all of the credit for this recipe. After an eight hour drive home, we discovered this beautiful, seasoned, and ready-to-cook piece of salmon in the fridge thanks to Colin's mom and sister. They had coated it in spices and oil, and all we had to do was put it in the oven. What a life. 


8 oz. piece of salmon
1 tsp. of tumeric
1 tsp. of salt
1/2 tsp. of pepper
1/2 tsp. of chili pepper
handful of grape tomatoes, halved
1 slice of lemon
1 TBSP of butter
fresh thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 385. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Season the salmon with all of those amazing and beautifully colored spices. Rub them gently onto the fish evenly.
  3. Set the fish on the parchment paper, top with tomatoes, lemon slice, and butter, then wrap everything up nicely in the paper. You can usually just roll the paper over itself to seal it. How wonderfully easy is that? 
  4. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until salmon is steamed appropriately. 
  5. Top with fresh thyme, then eat with your fingers fresh from the oven and give thanks for awesome family members.
