Preparations

  1. Set oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a sheet pan with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or olive oil. Evenly spread out the salmon fillets on the tray. Generously season them with salt and pepper.
  3. Combine chipotle pepper, paprika and cumin in a small bowl. Evenly sprinkle about ¼ teaspoon of the spice mixture on top of the salmon. Drizzle each fillet with ¼ teaspoon maple syrup (more if needed), spread evenly on top.
