Sunday Night Baked Salmon

Sunday Night Baked Salmon

I love baked salmon. None of my recipes are nutritious so I decided to try something different. Not only is my baked salmon low in calories, it is an excellent source of vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and selenium. Trust me, this dish is delicious and you won’t feel guilty eating it.



  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoons chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon 4-Peppercorn spice
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
  • Ginger, 1-2 inch knob, sliced
  • Salt and pepper


  • Combine Dijon mustard, olive oil, butter, chili flakes, 4-Peppercorn spice and soy sauce
  • Slice ginger into 4-5 slices
  • Baste salmon in marinade and season with salt and pepper
  • Place ginger on top of salmon and wrap salmon in tin foil
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Bake salmon for 20 minutes or until cooked through
  • Serve immediately

This is the healthiest dish I have ever made and it tastes great with white wine.
