Baked Salmon with herbs

After a full week of eating donuts for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a much needed detox was in order to start the week. Salmon is always my first idea for a healthy and filling meal. I decided this time to blend a mix of spices with olive oil and garlic, let them infuse for a couple of minutes and coat the fish. What is a better way to start the week?

4 pieces of salmon 

2 tbsp of olive oil



4 cloves of garlic grated

2 tbsp of lemon zest 

1/3 cup of chopped cilantro 

1 tbsp of dill

1 tbsp of thyme

1 tbsp of oregano

Heat the oven to 400. Coat a large baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fish. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with all the remaining herbs and the lemon zest. Let it rest for a couple of minutes and coat the fish. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. 

Miso Glazed Salmon


  • 2 tbsp of white miso
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 3 tbps of soy sauce
  • 2 tbps of rice vinegar
  • 4 servings of salmon fillet
  • 2 tbps of sesame seeds

In a small bowl, mix the white miso, brown sugar, soy sauce and rice vinegar.

Season the fish with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 450. Roast the salmon for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush the glaze onto the fillets et return to the oven. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. Once the fish is ready, sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.

Mustard crusted salmon

I make this recipe very often – because it’s easy to make, healthy, delicious and filling. I like to make salmon once or twice a week and prefer a light dish specially in warm summer days. 

  • 4 salmon fillet
  • 3 tbsp of Dijon mustard
  • Salt pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • Olive oil 
  • 1/2 cup of flavored bread crumbs 

Preheat the oven to 400. Brush olive oil on the salmon, sprinkle some salt and pepper. Using a small spoon, spread the mustard on top of the fish, add the bread crumbs and spray some cooking spray on top so it’s doesn’t dry. 

Arrange the fish on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
