AMAZING HEALTH BENEFITS OF SALMON
Before we get started I thought it would be helpful to learn about some of the health benefits of salmon. Salmon is classified as an oily fish, and considered to be healthy due to the fish's high protein, high omega-3 fatty acids, and high vitamin D content. Salmon is also a source of cholesterol, with a range of 23–214 mg/100 g depending on the species. Salmon is also high in B Vitamins, Potassium, Selenium, and the antioxidant Astaxanthin. Eating salmon also reduces depression and the risk of heart disease. Adding a Caribbean touch to your salmon will definitely spice things up in your attempt to eat healthier.

any seasonings you would use to season your fish normally
Now It's Time to Cook!
Prepare the marinade & salmon: Combine all the marinade ingredients and coat the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours. Note: This step can be done the day before for a deeper flavor & to save time.
Prepare the baking sheet: Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and use butter to grease the foil before putting the salmon on the baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet.
Bake the salmon: Set the oven to 450°F. Bake the salmon until it is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Broil the salmon: Heat the broiler and place an oven rack a few inches below the heating element. Broil the salmon for about 5 minutes, until the salmon has a little char.
