3 Ingredient Fresh Sockeye Salmon Dinner!!

3 Ingredient Fresh Sockeye Salmon Dinner!!

One of my favorite meals is baked Sockeye Salmon! So yummy, so simple, so fast & so very healthy. The entire herd loves this meal ((I think Gracie loves it because it is pink!)). Have you ever baked salmon fillets?

They may seem a bit intimidating and with $14+/lb there is very little room for error. Well, I have perfected the process and taken out the possibility of error, just for you! Say goodbye to dry, fishy tasting salmon.

Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Salmon Seasoning is SO good. ((The price on Amazon is high, I purchased mine at Homeland for about $5.)) A bit of sweet, lemony, peppery and a yummy combination of herbs and spices make this seasoning blend the perfect addition to salmon.

Leaving the skin on boosts the flavor & locks in moisture – so don’t be afraid of the skin!

(Do you see the elbows in the background?? The convo taking place is on the verge of an argument — “I get that side!” …”No, that’s too much! Not fair!” … “I call the biggest piece!”… “Can I have two pieces??!!”)

Rub each side of the fillet with canola oil, lightly season the skin-side & well season the fleshy side.

Bake for about 18 minutes on 400° – and BOOM! Dinner is served.

 Along with the salmon, I served a yummy heirloom tomato, celery & cucumber salad dressed in a light homemade buttermilk ranch.

Ingredients
  1. 3 lbs Fresh Wild-Caught Sockeye Salmon Fillets (skin on & de-boned)
  2. Canola Oil
  3. Chef Paul Prudhomme's Magic Seasoning Blend
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Rub both sides of the salmon fillets with canola oil. Lightly season the skin side & heavily season the flesh side of each fillet.
  2. Tuck the thinnest portion of each fillet under, in order to ensure even cooking.
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  4. These fillets were under 1" thick. If the fillets are thicker a few more minutes in the oven may be required. As soon as you see the white proteins appear on the surface of the flesh - cooking is complete.

Wondering what the white stuff on my salmon is? It is more prevalent in fresh fish ((which is what this is)) and appears when the fish has been cooked through. Some people like to eat salmon medium or even rare ((I am not one of those people)), but we serve our salmon perfectly well-done. If you are curious about this and must know more, read this article.
