Onion-Ginger Salmon

Great way to get your good fats! This salmon recipe is easy and delicious.


1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1/2 Cup lime juice (about 4 limes juiced)

1 small onion, chopped

2 tsp tarragon

1 Tbs salt

2 tsp fresh ginger, grated (or 1/2 tsp ground ginger)

2 gloves garlic, minced (or 1/4 tsp garlic powder)

Dash of red pepper flakes

1-1.5lbs fresh salmon (I love King, but any variety will work)


Combine all ingredients in bowl. Place salmon, skin side down, in baking dish. Pour marinade over top of salmon and let sit for 30 minutes. Drain marinade, reserving onions/ginger/garlic. Place onion mixture back on top of salmon. Bake salmon at 425 degrees for 25-45 minutes. Cooking time will vary based on thickness of fish.

Serve salmon and delicious onion mixture with baked or roasted potatoes.
