Harissa is one of my go-to sauces for adding a quick burst flavor to any ingredient. You can put it on veggies, meats, seafood, and eggs and even use it as a dipping sauce. For this recipe, I literally just smothered the harissa on top of the salmon with a little lemon zest and put it in the oven.
- 1 lb wild salmon fillet (skin on)
- 2 tbsp Mina green spicy harissa
- zest of 1/2 lemon plus 4 wedges for serving
- 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp raw sugar
Line a baking sheet with foil and heat oven to 400F.
Cut salmon in 4 pieces and season with kosher salt.
Spread harissa over the top of the filet and sprinkle with lemon zest.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just opaque. Remove salmon from oven and set to broil.
Sprinkle sugar on top of fillet and return to oven for an additional 2 - 4 minutes until beginning to brown at edges and caramelize on top.
Sprinkle with additional zest, if desired, and serve with lemon wedges.
