This oven baked salmon with herbs is a fancy dinner idea that takes very little effort. Serve with rice and veggies for a full meal.
While the majority of my recipes are plant based, I like to eat chicken and fish occasionally! Salmon is hands down my favorite fish. I loved how quick and easy this one-pan meal was and and I really liked the salmon because it had a ton of flavor without any added fat or salt. The lime juice, garlic, spices and fresh tomato added a light, summery seasoning to the fish – perfect for a fancy yet simple weeknight dinner.
Salmon is a nutrition superstar. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which most of us could use more of in our diet! It’s also a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It’s an amazing source of healthy fats to incorporate into your diet on a regular basis.
If you’re not a big salmon fan you could definitely use another firm fish like cod or red snapper for this recipe.
Simply mix all of the ingredients (other than the salmon) together. Place the fillets in a baking dish and spread the mixture over the fix. Bake for 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
You can’t go wrong with veggies and a grain with this salmon! I roasted some zucchini and squash by simply chopping, drizzling with olive oil and baking. Pro tip: turn your oven to broil at the end of cooking to get your veggies brown and crispy. Serve with rice, quinoa or a grain of your choice.
