Delicious, healthy salmon recipes that are perfect weekday lunches and dinners! These protein-packed salmon recipes are quick, easy and packed with flavor.

Let’s talk all things salmon! If I’m not making something with chicken or ground turkey I love creating delicious salmon recipes. There’s literally nothing better than a flavorful, perfectly cooked salmon for dinner.  I love how versatile it is for adding your favorite spices, sauces, and even fresh salsas, plus it’s incredibly easy to cook.

An easy tip for baking: for every inch of thickness, bake your salmon for 15 minutes. Generally mine is usually perfect around 18 minutes. Marinate it, place it on a baking sheet, and boom you have perfectly cooked salmon!

Salmon packs tons of protein, healthy fats, omega-3’s, and even a boost of vitamin D, so you know you’re getting a super nutrient-dense meal. The filets are great for making dinner for two (hello date night meal right here!) or picking up a few extra to feed the whole family with your fav veggies + whole grains. SO many possibilities.
