Baked Salmon Fillets with Garlic and Butter


This easy gluten-free recipe for baked salmon always makes a dinner my family likes.

Gluten-free salmon fillets baked with garlic and butter is easy to prepare, so I often use it for a 30 minute meal.

You can easily season each serving differently if you are cooking for different tastes.  You can use something different on each fillet — garlic, or dill weed, or lemon pepper, or Old Bay Seasoning, or a chili pepper mix, for example.  I make a combination of my own favorite seasonings with a hint of Cajun (you can find it here) to put on my fish.  My husband likes the simple combination of garlic and butter.

Baked potatoes and a salad of mixed greens go well with this fish.  It would also combine well with rice pilaf and steamed asparagus.

    Oooh, your pasta sounds wonderful! Yesterday I was actually looking at a jar of pesto on my shelf, thinking about what to put it on besides our standard focaccia…it would be so good with salmon, too! I’ll have to try that soon…like you suggested, with some pasta, and some asparagus. I’ll have to keep the dishes separate, though — Al likes to mix things on his own plate.

    Let me know when you’ll be here, and we’ll have dinner ready! :-)

  • Pat… can I come over for dinner? :-)

    We had Salmon for dinner tonight, I tried something new…Pesto sauce! It was really good! I think I might even try flaking the salmon next time and tossing it with pasta and pesto, and maybe some asparagus too. What do you think? :-)
