2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
24 ounce salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1 Cooking spray
1 cup lemon, sliced
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper (about 1 medium)

Recipe Directions for Moroccan Salmon

  1. Preheat oven to 400.

  2. Combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Add salmon, turning to coat. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. Remove salmon from bowl, reserving marinade. Place the salmon, skin side down, in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

  3. Cut lemon in half lengthwise; cut 1 lemon half crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Reserve remaining lemon half for another use. Add the lemon slices, red and green bell pepper slices, 2 tablespoons water, and tomato slices to marinade; stir gently to coat. Arrange lemon mixture in an even layer over salmon; cover with foil. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

  4. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with about 1/2 cup lemon mixture, and drizzle each serving with about 2 1/2 tablespoons pan juices.
