Cooking salmon in the oven is already easy enough, but with this method, you’ll completely eliminate the need for cleanup and the time to cook a side for your salmon.
This foil baked salmon recipe takes care of everything in one shot. Oh, did I mention there are only 349 calories per serving? So it’s diet-friendly as well! I had an idea that it was sort of light on calories when I was whipping this up, but didn’t realize how low it was until I popped it into a calculator.
I do recommend serving this with a side of brown rice since 349 calories is a bit light for dinner. We opted for the brown rice and this was perfectly filling.
