7 healthy salmon recipes that your family won't be able to resist

Print this recipe
I love eating fish (especially when it's wrapped in a sushi roll). Salmon, however, is one that's hit or miss for me because it can taste too fishy if it's not cooked and flavored the right way. Fortunately, there are plenty of chefs who have a better grasp of how to prep this type of fish.
Salmon is a heart-healthy, protein-filled, heavy-hitter for people trying to eat a healthy diet. If you want to add some more of this flavorful fish to your diet, try adding one of these recipes to your menu rotation.

1. Salmon with spinach, garlic, and tomato (h/t Matty Fusaro)
This meal is exactly what it purports to be: a well-seasoned piece of salmon (skin on) with sauteed garlic, tomato, and cheese. Yum. Even I can handle this recipe!
2. Honey-glazed salmon h/t (The Spruce)
Salmon has a gentler flavor, so if you're keen to keep it front and center, try a recipe like this one. The honey adds a little bit of sweetness, which highlights (instead of hides) the fish flavor. The glaze is quick to prepare; then you just have to wait for the fish to cook al the way through.
3. Cilantro-lime honey garlic salmon (h/t Julia's Album)
Two things I love about this recipe: the fantastic flavor and easy cleanup. The foil helps keep your fish together (as it softens when it's cooking) and helps the meat stay moist. I'm half thinking this might actually make a decent tin-foil dinner for camping...
4. Smoked salmon pizza h/t Health)
Did someone say pizza? I'm a fan of oddish toppings on pizza (bring on the artichokes and pineapple). Slicing thin pieces of salmon on a cream-cheese topped slice sounds amazing. Bonus: less salt and more protein than a pepperoni pizza.
5. Pan-seared salmon (h/t Momtastic)
Somedays you need a meal that requires as little effort as possible, and this may just be the perfect recipe to rescue your night. There are only five ingredients, and the fish is done in less than 15 minutes. Serve with sweet potato fries or a cold salad.
6. Hoison-glazed salmon (h/t Pinch of Yum)
The hoison-glazed salmon looks like something you would see at a five-star restaurant, but it only takes 10 minutes to prep! Save yourself $50 and try making this tasty fish dish at home.
7. Baked eggs with smoked salmon (h/t To her Core)
Eggs and fish sound like an odd combination, and that's before you add buckwheat and mint to the mix. While this dish may seem a little too daring, it's a great option if you need a major protein fix. This recipe makes about five portion sizes.
