Great Options for Baking Salmon

Baking salmon is an easy way to incorporate omega 3s into your diet all year long!

Salmon fillets take only about 15 minutes to bake in the oven and they can be topped with a huge variety of seasonings to suite your tastes! Try using our teriyaki sauce recipe to marinate your salmon prior to baking or simply season with salt, pepper and a little bit of lemon juice and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F (or until the flesh flakes easily with a fork).

Another of my favorite ways to cook salmon is the Dijon recipe below.
