Oven Baked Salmon – Asian Style

salmon

Hi Everyone! Hope your weekend was great 🙂

Today, I want to share with you a favorite of mine. This salmon dish is one that I have been making for my family for several years now. It’s definitely a hit. I’ve never been a seafood kind of girl growing up but after college; I widened my horizons with food and introduced more seafood into my everyday diet. Boy, am I glad that I did. Salmon is one of my favorite fish to cook; not only is it super delicious if baked properly but so good for you! Salmon is a great source of Omega 3- Fatty Acids, Protein, and nutrients. Definitely, a fish you want to incorporate in your diet especially if you are watching those calories like I am ha 🙂 This recipe is so simple & the Asian flavors just take it to another level!

Ingredients

3 salmon fillets

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 fresh lemon’s juice

1 tablespoon ground ginger

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/4 a cup of chopped cilantro or parsley

Salt & pepper to taste

1 tablespoon minced garlic

Instructions

  • Marinate the salmon with the lemon juice, soy sauce, cilantro, ginger, coconut oil, garlic, and salt & pepper. Set aside for an hour in the fridge covered in plastic wrap. If you marinate for more than an hour, the fish can actually start cooking because of the salt.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Once the salmon has been marinated for about an hour; spray your baking pan with olive oil and spread the fish onto the pan. They are now ready to go into the oven! Cook these for approximately 15-20 minutes covered in foil. Then bake 5 minutes uncovered. Squeeze some lemon juice on top; sprinkle some salt and you have yourself a delicious piece of fish!

Wasn’t that easy? No excuses to not eat healthy you guys! Do yourself a favor and fill your body with nutritious food. It will thank you later 🙂

I served the salmon with baby arugula salad to keep the meal light but it also pairs very well with rice and roasted veggies.

Bon Appetit!
