My BIG FAT Grain Free Life: Glazed Baked Salmon

Glazed Baked Salmon

Since wild sockeye salmon is in season, I thought I'd post this Glazed Baked Salmon recipe.  Salmon is our son's favorite fish and he loves it prepared in this way.

This recipe is a combination of my mom's "scampi" recipe - though it's not a traditional scampi - and my BFF's (Julia McRae of Healthy Home Nutrition) salmon recipe.

Julia is a pro when it comes to merging healthy living with delicious cooking.  Here's what she has to say about salmon:

"Salmon is what we call a super food.  It has a very high nutrient profile.  Besides being a great source of protein, salmon is very high in omega-3s that help our bodies fight inflammation.  It also contains good amounts of vitamins D3, B12 and selenium.  Wild caught salmon is one of the few fish we can be worry-free about when it comes to mercury.  And, best of all, it is very versatile.  It can be grilled, broiled, pan fried or baked and it turns out fantastic!  My favorite way is grilled with a mango cilantro salsa.  Enjoy!"

Glazed Baked Salmon 

Ingredients:

1 side of salmon fillet (whole fillet bones removed and skin on)
4 tablespoons ghee
5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400F.

Heat ghee in small pot. (I use stainless steel mixing cup on stove top.)  Add Worcestershire, oregano and garlic powder.

Pour marinade into 8x11 pan.  Add fish, flesh side down and marinate for 15-20 minutes.

Turn fish skin side down and bake in oven for 10-20 minutes, depending on thickness of fish.  Don't overcook!

Serve with sauce spooned on top.  Enjoy!

O.K. so I made this one too! It's the first time I ever ate any type of fish without it tasting like fish. Finally! We all enjoyed it.
