I love Salmon.  I will admit that it is one of those fish that some folks either love or hate…but I think it’s all in how you cook it!  I have been trying out different, healthy recipes for us and salmon and we have really been enjoying them.  Most recently we made Oven Baked Salmon with a light and easy lemon sauce. 

This salmon recipe is very easy to make and only requires about 10 minutes of prep time.  The sauce is light, but definitely has enough flavor. 

We served ours over rice, but it would also be incredible with fresh roasted vegetables.  Salmon is ZERO Points on WW, so you will find that I make salmon a lot 🙂

Here’s my Baked Salmon in a Light Lemon Sauce recipe.  Be sure to print it and pin it so that you can make it again and again.

    1. After – that is the sauce that you put on once it is cooked. Just drizzle some over the top – as well as on your rice/quinoa 🙂

  1. Is there anything better than lemon on fish? I love eating salmon, and this recipe sounds like something I would really enjoy. Thank you!
