Sweet and Savory Salmon

Salmon is loaded with protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and it’s so easy to prepare. It’s recommended you eat seafood twice a week to get the omega-3 fatty acids you need for heart, brain and eye health.

This recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes start to finish. I used a cedar plank (thanks to a free gift from the Seafood Nutrition Partnership) but you can simply use a glass baking dish. I baked mine in the oven, but you can also grill it.

Recipe Notes
  • Each serving provides 34 grams of protein (per 6-ounce portion)
  • You can also use a cedar plank and bake or grill the salmon. If so, soak plank for 2 hours before grilling (a well-soaked plank can be baked for 20 minutes too, but keep an eye on the oven).
  • Round out the meal with a side of sautéed broccoli or green beans and a baked potato with light sour cream.
