Salmon Filets Salmon is the star of this easy-baked meal. Salmon comes from the cold waters of the North Atlantic and North Pacific. This unique and delicious fish is known for its pink flakey skin and luscious fish flavor. Choosing good salmon filets is the key to making thi sBaked Salmon and Broccoli recipe really shine! Look for salmon that is fresh rather than frozen whenever possible. Fresh salmon should look bright orangey-pink in color it should not have an unpleasant smell, and it should feel firm if you lightly press it.

Broccoli This bright green veggie is the perfect match for the savory and sweet notes in fresh salmon. Fresh broccoli is an excellent choice whenever available but if it’s not broccoli season you can try using frozen broccoli.

Olive Oil Olive oil is such a common kitchen staple that most people do not even pause to think about what it is. Olive oil is an amazing cold-pressed cooking oil made from fresh green olives. The best versions of this ingredient are made of pure Italian olives with no additives.

Garlic Powder Garlic powder is a simple seasoning made from dried garlic. This seasoning has the power to transform basic dishes into culinary wonders! If you’re all about DIY try using a food dehydrator or a low-temperature oven to dry the garlic and then grind it into powder with a spice grinder.

Salt Salt is the spice of life. Literally we need salt to survive and to make our food taste good. To get the most natural and healthy salt flavor in your dish, try to use natural salts like sea salt or Himalayan salt. A fine to medium grind is great for this fishy dish.

Nutritional Yeast Nutritional yeast is a familiar favorite for anyone who eats a lot of plant-based meals. This supercharged seasoning is loaded with rich yeasty earthy, and almost cheese-like flavors. It is the perfect thing to add a little savory punch to this seafood recipe.
