Healthy Baked Salmon

As a follow up to the very popular Health Seared Salmon post, L & I have been experimenting with baked fish not only simplify cooking by mixing veggies in with the fish but also making the meal a little more healthy compared to pan searing in oil. Ok lets start with the fish marinade recipe:

  • 1 TBS Olive Oil
  • 2 TBS Mustard
  • 4 TBS Red Wine Vinegar
  • Red Chili Flakes 
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Dash of Love

You can marinade the fish for hours or just before cooking and use the sauce for dipping. Next cut up a bunch of your favorite vegetables; we usually use yellow and orange peppers, asparagus, sweet potatoes, etc and place them in a glass pan with a little of the marinade. Set the Salmon skin side down over the veggies and bake on medium heat for 20 minutes or so depending on how you like your fish cooked. I personally feel over cooking a fish is a sacrilegious, but thats just me. 

We opened a bottle of Malbec with the meal and tasted great together. Enjoy your baked fish!!
