Step 1

(1) preheat oven to 350F
(2) line a roasting pan with parchment paper and place salmon (skin side down) on paper
(3) Make fig topping- Place all other ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a low boil. Simmer 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid is cooked off. Transfer to a food processor and process to a smooth consistency.
(4) evenly spread the fig topping on the fish
(5) bake for 18-22 - depending on thickness of salmon pieces and how well done you like your salmon. I prefer mine slightly undercooked, so take it out after about 18 minutes.
(6) let salmon rest on stovetop or counter for 3-4 minutes to finish cooking
(7) serve with roasted veggies and simple salad for a complete meal.
