The Easiest Baked Salmon

Easiest Baked Salmon

Anyone else hate cooking chicken? I think my mom scarred me growing up after always panicking that the chicken wasn’t cooked. Now I panic haha.

A few months ago I deiced to start cooking fish for myself. I know right? Growing up we never ate fish because our my mom doesn’t like it. I literally remember the first time I ate fish was in college with my friend Lisa’s family. I’m pretty sure it was fried calamari. Gotta start somewhere. 🙂 

Anyway, after a few practice rounds, I have the EASIEST healthy baked salmon recipe for you. It’s foolproof for anyone who wants something simple, but still super flavorful and delicious. Sometimes I change up the seasoning, but the the sea salt, pepper and garlic powder combo makes the top form a nice crispy coating while the inside stays flaky. I pair this salmon with a mixture of steamed and roasted veggies or place it on top of zucchini noodles for a low carb dish. I make this salmon for Lou and I once a week and it comes out perfect every time. Hope you enjoy!
