This is a quick and easy salmon recipe with a nice amount of spice. It's good even for picky eaters.
Wow! This dish came out way better than I could have imagined. The paste forms a nice crust on the salmon making it have a cajun feel to it. The spiciness is nicely offset by the sweetness of the caramelized onions. It's also super simple to make. I did double the cayenne because I like spicy and omitted the onion powder (didn't have any.) I also used a whole onion which was the right choice. One note - if the salmon is thick then use a lower heat because the paste will burn the top while the inside remains raw. - 02 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Ahoney squeeze of honey to the marinade to give it some more sweetness. Also keep the onion in strips when they are minced you can't even taste them. - 18 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Hubby actually liked this! It was too spicy for our 3 year old though. I baked my salmon in the oven, and used sliced onions rather than minced. It's great served with wild rice pilaf and broccoli. - 31 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
