Sharing is caring!

Chipotle salmon cooked in the Ooni Pizza Oven is AMAZING! – I just can’t tell you HOW MUCH I LOVE our Ooni pizza oven! And since we bought the cast iron sizzle pan we use it more than ever! Because hey – those pizza ovens cook more than just pizza ya know!

Honestly I never thought I’d be so much in love with a pizza oven! I mean I never really got with the whole BBQ thing, I always found it a faff but the Ooni pizza oven is a whole other game!

Especially since we bought the gas converter. It’s easier than ever to cook in! It’s super easy to set up and use. And it cooks homemade pizza and sizzle pan food creations to complete perfection! Honestly, staying home cooking in the garden is my new favourite thing to do!

  • Heat up the Ooni pizza oven – you’re looking for a cooking temperature of around 350C / 660F. I check the temperature using an Infrared Thermometer. You just point the beam into the oven for the reading – it takes literally seconds to do.

  • Mix up the chipotle marinade – take a small bowl or pan and add in the juice of the lime, the chipotle paste and the honey and mix everything together well with a teaspoon.
  • Load up the sizzle pan – rub the bottom of the sizzle pan with a little olive oil, then lay the salmon fillets skin down onto the pan. Drizzle half the marinade over the salmon fillets.
  • Cook the salmon in the Ooni – once the Ooni has reached the right temperature place the sizzle pan into the pizza oven. Cook for around 2-3 minutes, then remove the pan and turn it around – this just helps the salmon to cook more evenly. Place it back into the pizza oven for a further 2-3 minutes.
  • Add more marinade – pull the sizzle pan out of the Ooni pizza oven and pour over the rest of the marinade. Then put back into the Ooni for around 2 minutes, remove the pan, turn it around and put it back in for a further 2 minutes until it starts to turn a delicious, rich golden colour.
  • Check the salmon is cooked through – I usually check the salmon is cooked through to the right temperature now using a Meat Thermometer – I usually cook the salmon until the thickest part is at least 60C – although some people do eat salmon at a lower cooked temperature.

How To Serve Chipotle Salmon Cooked In The Ooni Pizza Oven

The super succulent salmon fillets are great served with rice, crispy potatoes or flaked through soba noodles with a dash of soy sauce and squeeze of lime.

I like to turn the chipotle salmon into a tasty salmon and rice salad with herbs, corn and avocado. Super healthy and totally delicious.
