Baking salmon has always been the easiest, healthiest, and most delicious way to prepare salmon for me. Put coconut oil generously on the baking sheet. Place salmon on top and squeeze some lemon on it. I like a lot of garlic so I use Majestic Garlic spread basil or cilantro (sold at Whole Foods) and cover the salmon with it. This adds lots of flavor. Dont cook too long to keep the juiciness. Boom, amazing salmon. Super easy and good to add to any salad for leftovers!

I prepare a parchment packet with salmon filet and a simple herb sauce. Process equal parts (1/4 cup) low fat mayo and organic sour cream (or greek yogurt) with a tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice and a couple tbsps fresh parsley in a food processer until a light green color. Place filets in parchment skin side down and spread sauce to coat fish evenly. Then I close the packets and bake at 400 for 15 to 20 min or until desired doneness and steam some brocolli to go on the side. The great thing is, it's kid-friendly, quick and easy, and if you want a starch any simple grain or root vegetable works great!

Garlic Encrusted Grilled Salmon on a Herbal Salad. I came up with this to combine my three most favorite things: Grilling, Garlic, and Salmon. Crush through a garlic press two whole cloves. Mix with Olive oil in a small bowl to create a thick garlic paste. Take a Salmon filet skin down and put on cutting board to prepare. Apply crushed garlic to salmon (not skin side). Add Kosher Salt and Fresh ground Black Pepper. Be sure to oil skin with olive oil to avoid burning. Place Salmon in fish grilling basket. Grill on medium to high heat,With the majority of time with skin down. Occasionally turning over to face side to brown fish and garlic. Avoid burning garlic or it will become bitter. Place on Organic Herbal Salad mix. You can use your favorite dressing. I like Olive Oil, Braggs Aminos and Lemon or A creamy Balsalmic Dressing Twitter@MarkSpurlockMFT

I'm not sure how original this recipe is. My mom makes it for holiday dinners and its my favorite way to eat salmon. She takes the following ingredients and cooks them until she has a thick sauce: 1/2 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey, 1/2 cup Brown sugar, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp honey, 1/2 tsp ground ginger. We always put in on the Salmon after grilling it on a cedar plank, but its so good I think it could go on salmon cooked any way you please!

I make Mediterranean salmon burgers using lemon, rosemary, and dill. They are easy to make at the beginning of the week to take to lunch, and they freeze well. Low sodium and full of protein! Here's the recipe with pics: http://www.sprint2thetable.com/2012/12/mediterranean-salmon-burger/

Bake salmon with maple syrup and a little orange juice. Just enough to cover fish. Unfortunately I never measure. I just go by taste. Bake in glass dish until fish is done to likeness. Serve with brown rice and broccoli.

Well...I've had this jerk rub (my recipe) custom blended for me by the World Spice Merchant staff in Seattle, WA. I use this almost like a blackening spice, sear the dusted salmon in light olive oil or a nut oil and finish it with fresh squeezed lime juice. Just pink in the middle and wonderfully delicious. I like to eat it with a fork with plenty of plain Hellmann's mayonnaise or sliced and tossed with a mixed greens salad with tomatoes, avocados, cukes and scallions, etc. -- with a citrus (instead of vinegar) vinaigrette. Simple and easy to prepare.
