This weekend I thought of trying something new and easy, and I want to share it with everyone. The name of the dish is jalapeo lime and ginger salmon. This tasty dish features tender salmon fillets coated with a spicy and tangy marinade prepared from jalapeo peppers, lime juice, honey, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic.
The process of making the jalapeo dish is very easy and quick; the salmon is baked in the oven until it is fully cooked.
The combination of flavours in this recipe is very unique and delicious: the heat from the jalapeo, the sweetness of honey, and the tinge of lime.
This dish is not only full of flavours but also nutritious for your health.

How long should I marinate salmon?
The time to marinate depends on the type of the marinade or the thickness of the salmon fillet. The best length of time to marinate for 30 minutes.
Salmon is a delicate fish, and over-marinating can result in a mushy texture and an overpowering flavor. If you’re using an acidic marinade that contains ingredients like lemon juice, vinegar, or wine, you should be particularly careful not to marinate for too long, as the acid can start to break down the fish.
Occasionally, we have to short to marinate, so it will be the best to simply seasoning it with salt and pepper or your favorite spice.
