| | Zesty Oven Baked Salmon

Author / Samantha Flaherty

Prep: 10 min + Marinade/ Bake: 15 min

With all the great protein options here on land, it can be easy to forget about the options swimming in the seas. Sure it’s hard to beat a great steak, but varying your protein sources can better guarantee you’re getting a complete macro (and micro) nutrient profile from your food, and can even potentially help to avoid developing food allergies from overeating only a few select choices. Salmon is a great source of both protein and those healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and this recipe is a nice way to add some kick in to your mealtime.

2-3# salmon

3 TBS olive oil

1 TBS coconut aminos

1 TBS honey

Zest of one lemon (save lemon for later)

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp Italian seasoning

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix together marinade ingredients in a small bowl
  2. Lay the salmon out in a 9×13 glass baking dish, or on a sheet pan
  3. Salt and pepper both sides of the fish
  4. Pour marinade over the fish and let sit for 1-3 hours

When you are ready to cook dinner:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Place marinated fish in the oven, skin side down
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the fish is flaky and moist

This fish is delicious served over rice and a bed of arugula.
