Baked Spiced Salmon

By: Susan Joy

This flavoursome Baked Spiced Salmon recipe can be served warm or at room temperature.

I’ve served the salmon over a bed of butter lettuce, grated carrot and beetroot, and spooned my Ranch Dressing over the dish and garnished with dill. You can find the RANCH DRESSING recipe here. Baking is such an easy way to cook salmon, and this healthy recipe makes for a quick and easy main meal.


  • 6 portions wild caught salmon
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 serving of Ranch Dressing see recipe link below
  • Garnish with fresh dill, sprigs


Preheat oven to 200c (fan-forced).

Add the coriander, smoked paprika, cumin and salt to a small bowl and mix well.

Use a large sheet of grease-proof paper and place your salmon on it (this will keep your kitchen clean). Use your hands to lightly coat the salmon with the oil, then sprinkle all sides with the spice mixture.

Place the seasoned salmon portions onto a heavy non-stick baking tray (if using salmon with skin on, place skin side down). Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.

Make the Ranch Dressing ahead or make it while the salmon is cooking. RANCH DRESSING recipe link.

Serve the salmon over a bed of butter or cos lettuce, grated carrot and beetroot, and a bowl of Ranch Dressing. Garnish with dill sprigs.
