Baked Salmon

Blog Baked Salmon with Salad-1I don’t know why I used to be scared to cook fish.  I guess it was the fear of the unknown.  Ok, and kind of the smell haha 🙂

Living in the NW, we are SO lucky to have access to amazing fresh fish, so I decided to get over my fear.  What I found out?  It’s EASY!

Honestly, I change up the marinade depending on what’s in my fridge, but usually I do something sweet + something salty + a little kick.  It’s Here’s what I did this last time…


    • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoons real maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (I cheat and use this)
    • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives (happened to have some left over from a previous dinner 🙂
    • A little sea salt and Pepper
    • 3-4 salmon filets


  • Preheat oven to 450
  • Line a baking pan with tin foil (makes the clean up SO easy!) and lay salmon skin side down.
  • Mix all the ingredients in bowl and pour over the salmon
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes (depends on the size of your filets)
  • Serve with a side salad and some crusty bread (<–not paleo), and you’re done!

      I hate the smell too!!! I used to make my husband cook all fish outside on the grill, but I swear this doesn’t smell up the house!! I think baking it in the oven is the key. I used to cook it on the cook top and wanted to gag/change my clothes/burn candles. Then…I started baking fish in the oven. SO much better and easier!
