Spiced Honey Baked Salmon

Baked Salmon- There is just something magical about Salmon + Honey! It's like the honey perfectly engulfs the salmon and locks in all the flavor and juiciness and what you get is a virtually fool-proof way to bake moist, flavorful, salmon. Season it with a a few spices { like smoked paprika, cumin and coriander} and it's just flavor perfection. Did I mention it was healthy too!

Notes

Recipe Notes:
The salmon continues to cook once you've removed it from the oven. You'll want to error on the side of removing the salmon when it is still looking just a tiny bit undercooked (darker pink). By the time the salmon has rested (5 minutes) you should have a perfectly cooked fillet.
