This Spicy Salmon with Jalapeno and Lime Recipe is made with ginger, jalapeno, and lime, and is packed with flavor, low carb and keto-friendly, and ready in just 15 minutes. 

Spicy Salmon with fresh ginger, jalapeno, garlic, and lime juice is one of those simple recipes you will make again and again.

I am always on the lookout for new salmon recipes since it is something I prepare on an almost weekly basis. Usually, I use some homemade spice blend using chili powder, but recently I wanted to switch things up with some fresh jalapenos. To give this spicy salmon both heat and spice flavor, I added some ginger as well. Then lime juice, garlic, and olive oil to round out the flavors.

This baked salmon recipe calls for jalapeno pepper, but you experiment with different types of peppers depending on your heat preference. You can also use your favorite chili powder if you don't want to use fresh peppers. Ancho chili powder will add some smoky flavor, while a traditional chili powder will have a milder flavor. Red pepper flakes will work as well.
