Lemon & Herb Baked Salmon
An easy & delicious dinner for your week –> Lemon Garlic & Herb Salmon. Takes only 20 minutes to bake, is super simple, and the perfect one pan dinner! This recipe could not be more uncomplicated.
Since Drew and I don’t eat a ton of meat throughout the week, we occasionally love to cook up some fresh wild caught salmon and vegetables. It’s a dinner that takes minimal prep work, and is so delicious! I’ve been making this lemony garlic & herb salmon for years. And as simple as it is, I still felt like it’s worth sharing if you are like me and occasionally have those “what do I cook for dinner” funks.
This lemon-y herb salmon could not be more refreshing & simple, I also love being able to cook it in my trusty Lodge cast-iron skillet. My favorite way to serve up this salmon is with roasted/grilled vegetables and rice or quinoa on the side.
If you are in need of a no-fuss, easy dinner, and that’s on the healthier side, THIS recipe is for you to have on those busier days. So simple, so tasty, and perfect for spring!
