1 large 1 1/2 - 2 pound salmon fillet or 4 salmon fillets, skin on
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper or to taste
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce* or coconut aminos
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2-3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro or parsley, divided
Lime slices for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with a large sheet of parchment paper or heavy-duty aluminum foil. Lay salmon on top and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Rub chili powder, paprika, and cumin on salmon and slide lime slices halfway underneath the salmon
In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce and lime juice and drizzle evenly over salmon. Sprinkle with half of the cilantro, fold parchment paper or foil sides up to prevent juices from leaking through (does not have to cover salmon). (Let the salmon marinate for at least 15 minutes)
Bake for 12-16 minutes (depending on how large your fish is), or until the salmon is flaky to your desired doneness but try not overcook. Open the foil and turn oven to broil - cooking for an additional 2-4 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
Cut into sections and discard skin and serve immediately with more chopped parsley, season with more salt (if needed) and a splash of lime juice.
