Balsamic Baked Salmon With California Strawberry Basil Salsa
This balsamic baked salmon recipe is topped with a refreshing strawberry basil salsa. It's such a simple, yet delicious summer dish that's bursting with flavour and nutrition! This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and a source of protein and fibre.
Place salmon fillets in a baking dish. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, honey, salt, and pepper. Pour over salmon and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F.
Dice all salsa ingredients and place into a bowl. Mix together well and set aside.
Bake salmon in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until desired doneness.
Remove salmon from oven and serve over a bed of grains (as desired). Be sure to spoon any excess marinade overtop!
Serve California strawberry salsa over salmon. Enjoy!
*WHAT TO SERVE THIS SALMON WITH: I love serving this salmon and strawberry salsa recipe over a bed of whole grains, like quinoa, farro, or brown rice. If you'd like, you can also toss in some greens, like baby arugula, kale, or spinach!*LEFTOVERS: Leftovers of this recipe will keep for about 2 days in an airtight container in the fridge. This recipe tastes great cold, so there's no need to reheat it (which I find can compromise the texture of baked salmon). While you can enjoy leftovers in the same way as mentioned above, a creative way to repurpose leftovers would be to flake up the cooked salmon and add it to a taco shell or an open-faced toast. Add the strawberry salsa overtop and enjoy!
