Salmon is one of the best foods to eat when trying to eat healthy. It's a lean protein (this recipe contains 24 grams of protein and only 5 grams of fat!) and is tasty to boot! Full of essential fatty acids, your waistline will be thanking you after this meal. At only 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints, you can make this meal over and over!
- We like to use skin-on fillets because it ensures that the bottom of the salmon won't burn and stick to the baking dish. When cooked, you can wedge a spatula in between the salmon and its skin, coming up with a clean, edible portion of salmon and leaving the skin on the baking dish.
- Portion control: A typical portion size for salmon is the size of your fist, or about three ounces.
- This recipe is pictured with our Skinny Country Green Beans. You could also serve steamed broccoli, sauteed green beans, steamed or grilled bok choy alongside the salmon!
- This recipe calls for grated fresh ginger. Not sure how to do that? No problem:
