Baked Salmon... Two Ways!

Salmon is a staple in our house now. I love it grilled on a cedar plank or baked with different flavorings. Salmon is not doubt one of the healthiest foods you can eat and some of the health benefits are amazing:
  • Rich in Vitamin D and B12. Tons of Omega-3 fatty acids. 
  • May improve inflammation, cognitive function, skin and hair, eye health and heart health. 
  • Great source of lean protein!
Salmon is so versatile and you can include it easily in your weekly meals. Ryan and I love whole wheat bagels with Greek yogurt and smoked salmon. You can make smoked salmon roll ups with Greek yogurt and diced cucumber and celery. Use the smoked salmon like a tortilla in a roll up and you're good to go! Baked or grilled salmon is great on salads as well.

I want to share my latest favorites with you today! 

On my first filet of salmon, I drizzled a little molasses and red pepper flakes. Bake it for 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven or until flaky. 


Or you can add some Liquid Smoke to a filet and bake it the same way. 


I absolutely loved the molasses salmon, but Ryan preferred the smoked one. 
They were both amazingly good! 


We ate ours with steamed broccoli and quinoa. 

Don't be afraid to try something new with some of your favorite meats. It keeps things from getting boring and you may even find a new favorite like I did!
