Lemon and Garlic Baked Salmon

I used to despise eating fish… that is, until I bravely tried salmon for the first time.  It was in the form of a salmon patty – caked in breading and drenched by ketchup to mask the fishy taste.  This eventually became the only way I could eat fish.  One night at one of my sorority dinners, we tried baked salmon and I surprisingly loved it.  Ever since, it has been a delicacy for me at restaurants when I get it (mostly because I’m a broke college student).  

Wanting to recreate that light and herb spiced taste, I stumbled upon this recipe and decided to tweak it a bit to create my own.  It turned out great – a little sweetness from the honey added and lots of lemon-y goodness.  I’m also a sucker for garlic and put it in everything, so it was bound for success with that first splash of garlic.  It also helps knowing all the health benefits of eating salmon!


[yumprint-recipe id=’25’] I served this dish alongside some “mock” cilantro lime rice by making roasted cauliflower.  It had a nice fresh taste and made for a great healthy side!  The recipe for this cauliflower rice can be found here.


What’s your favorite way to eat salmon?  

I also hope that everyone is having a great start to 2017!  It is one of my goals this year to be more active on The Balanced Guru in providing more easy and healthy recipes and getting to know more of my readers!  I start my last semester of undergrad tomorrow and I am already in denial to how fast these four years have gone by.  Konrad and I started in the new year by going on a ski trip to Winter Park, Colorado with some of our friends.  Here is a little clip from our trip – such a beautiful time of the year to visit and have fun!
