Baked Salmon

Healthy Baked Salmon

I’ve probably been a seafood lover since I was in my mom’s tummy. My family had a house on the beach about 50 minutes away from my home town. My parents started taking me there from the time I was just a few days old! That’s where we celebrated my baptism, birthdays, Christmases, and every imaginable holiday. I ate all types of seafood. Including shrimp, all kids of fish (except salmon), clams, oysters, scallops, and even manta ray! Seafood is a must eat in my home.

Since I’m such a seafood lover, I should have more seafood recipes in this blog right? I have a few shrimp ones but not many with fish :(.

My cousin was asking me the other day if I had a fish recipe and to my dismay I realized I only have one salmon recipe!!! (see my blackened salmon tacos recipe. Yum!). I think it’s time to change that don’t you agree?.  I will be adding more seafood recipes soon. The good thing about this recipe is that it can be used for any kind of fish. If it’s a thinner fish, I would lower the cooking time (about 5 to 7 minutes) but the method should still be the same. Enjoy!
