I love purchasing my ingredients at Sprouts because…

  • It’s convenient and close to my house and workout studio!
  • They always have a great selection of fresh produce and all the natural products I need.
  • Sprouts is affordable and I can shop there within my budget.

This recipe is super simple, delicious, beautiful and the best way to feed a crowd. The salmon is baked and while it’s in the oven you can prepare the strawberry salsa. A 20-Minute Meal!

What kind of salmon should I buy?

  • This recipe uses a 1 lb. wild sockeye salmon fillet but you can also use salmon filets, skin-on (about 6-8 ounces each). Sprouts has them in the frozen section that I love to buy and use too.
  • The salmon should have skin that is bright silvery, and the flesh should be shiny, moist and brightly-colored. 

How to bake salmon

  • First, bring the salmon to room temperature by letting it rest on the counter for 15-20 minutes. Letting the salmon come to room temperature first will help with even cooking.
  • You’ll want to season your salmon with salt, pepper and garlic next. Be sure to blot your salmon first if it’s too wet.
  • Bake in a preheated oven set to 375 degrees F in an oven safe dish lined with foil and coated with a little olive oil so it doesn’t stick. Bake until salmon is lightly translucent in the center, anywhere from 12-16 minutes. Fish should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F which should be measured at the thickest part of the fillet.
  • How to check for doneness in your salmon: Use a fork to check salmon for doneness. When the fish flakes easily, it’s done.
