Whole30 Citrus-Herb Salmon

As seen on our Whole30 Challenge: Day 2. Click to read more!

To switch it up for dinner (and make use of the protein department we overloaded on before things went to waste over the weekend), we made the bulk supply of salmon. You would think we were having a dinner party, but nope, just my hubby and me!

​I marinated the salmon with a little olive oil and LOTS of lemon juice. I then seasoned the salmon with the seasoning I found at Whole Foods along with some dill. I cooked it in the oven until it was not too cold, not too hot, but just right. I garnished with a few small trees and some tongs for upping the ante on my food styling game. :)

TASTE TEST: I will say it was cooked perfectly and just as delicious as it looks. :)

Whole30 Citrus-Herb Salmon

INGREDIENTS:

  • salmon filets

  • olive oil

  • 2 lemons (1 for juice and 1 for garnish)

  • dill seasoning

  • Seafood Spice Blend (or favorite Whole30-approved spices)

  • salt and pepper to taste

STEPS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil (to minimize cleanup later).

  3. Pat salmon dry with a paper towel, and place salmon skin-side down on foil.

  4. Squeeze lemon juice over salmon to marinate. Brush salmon lightly with olive oil.

  5. Season with Seafood Spice Blend (or your favorite Whole30 spice blend) along with dill.

  6. Bake salmon in the oven for 12-17 minutes until internal temperature of the thickest part of salmon is 145°F. (Timing depends on size and thickness of salmon, so check temperature after 12 minutes, and keep baking until thickest part reaches 145°F.)

  7. Garnish with lemon slices.
