Baked salmon can be easy to make and super delicious to eat! This recipe has a buttery sauce to jazz up the already mouthwatering salmon…a low carb meal perfect for the entire family!
How To Prepare Easy Baked Salmon
First of all, you need salmon. No brainer, right?
If you have an Aldi grocery store near you, that is probably where you’ll get a great deal on a big bag of salmon fillets.
Follow the directions on the back of the bag for thawing salmon.
This recipe is super simple…you just lay each fillet in a greased pan, pour the sauce over fillets and bake!
It is literally something you can make at the beginning of the week and warm up through the week for meals or salads.
Buttery Baked Salmon
Once you taste the flavors of the buttery sauce that tops your salmon, you’ll be a fan!
Using worcestershire sauce gives this recipe a savory and sweet flavor with a distinct tang.
Who doesn’t love butter, though?
It’s as if the buttery sauce smothers each salmon fillet and it makes the entire dish taste phenomenal.
Sweet Easy Salmon
Who would’ve ever thought that adding some “brown sugar” to a salmon dish would take the flavors to a whole new level?
You won’t regret making this sweet, butter sauce!
The sweetener I chose to use was Lakanto Golden sweetener. We love the brown sugar flavor it adds to any recipe!
You could also use Swerve brown sugar if that’s what you have on hand.
How Do I Know When My Salmon Is Cooked Through?
There are two ways to know when your salmon is done!
The first way is when your salmon flakes apart easily.
The second, and probably the most accurate, way to tell if your salmon is cooked all the way through is to use a food thermometer and test the thickest part of your salmon. It should reach at least 145 degrees.
What Ingredients Do I Need To Make Easy Baked Salmon?
Aside from the salmon, you may already have all of the required ingredients to make this yummy fish dish!!
- frozen salmon fillets
- worcestershire sauce
- Dijon mustard
- garlic powder
How Do I Store Cooked Salmon?
If you have leftovers, you can easily place the fillets in a container and throw an airtight lid on, then store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Other Ways To Cook Salmon
There is more than one way to prepare an awesome piece of fish…though baking is probably my favorite!
Simply add your seasonings to the fillets, place on aluminum foil covered grill, and in just a few minutes you will have a perfectly cooked piece of salmon.
Pan Fried Salmon
When you want a nice crispy layer on your fish, the best thing to do is fry it skin side down in a skillet with some butter!
If you want an intensely tender piece of salmon, poaching is the way to go.
Poaching salmon means that the fillets sit in simmering water with seasonings under low pressure, and cook until tender!
How Much Protein Is In One Salmon Fillet?
A 3.5-ounce serving of salmon contains around 22–25 grams of protein.
For those following the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, salmon would be a Fuel Pull.
You will want to look for salmon with less than 5 grams of fat per serving. If it is higher than 5 grams, you will be in the S category.
Because I use a buttery sauce in this recipe, it would have more than 5 grams of fat and be considered an S for sure!
Sides To Have With Baked Salmon
When it comes to sides, you will find that these sausage pepper poppers are definitely a go-to side item. They go well with just about any meal!
Maybe you’d prefer to have some deviled eggs instead? Try these delicious ham and cheddar deviled eggs as a side!
A simple salad would be just fine to eat alongside baked salmon!
Whatever you choose, I’m sure it will be super tasty.
