Dijon and Rosemary Salmon

How do you feel about salmon?

Dijon and Rosemary Wild Salmon

I have not always been a fan of fish/seafood. Honestly, I think it was because my family was eating bland tilapia filets for dinner. Not super exciting. As I got older, I learned how to properly season fish to avoid drying it out in the oven. Nothing is worse than a dried out piece of fish!

Salmon is so versatile and can hold its own as the star of a dish. The fish can also be added to a salad or pasta dish (I love LOVE salmon with spaghetti squash). I definitely don’t recommend eating salmon every day, but it’s a great meal to turn to a few times a month.

This heart healthy recipe is perfect for those on the Mediterranean Diet or pescatarians. It is also only 3 WW points. If you’re not a fan of salmon, I recommend checking out my Dijon and Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin. There’s something for everyone on this site!

Why Wild Salmon?

Wild salmon is so much better than farm-raised salmon. It has less artificial coloring and you do not have to worry about what is being fed or pumped into the salmon. Farm-raised salmon is much higher in saturated fat as well. Best to stick to wild salmon. You’ll get the added minerals, such as potassium and zinc.

    For the baking – do we COVER the salmon with the foil OR is the salmon open lying on the foil only?

    1. Hi Monika! You’ll just use the foil to line the pan or dish and then leave the salmon uncovered on top
