It’s summer time and everyone wants to eat lighter and healthier so I thought it would be the perfect time to share this recipe.

There’s the choice between buying fresh versus frozen salmon and when we filmed this video, I encouraged people to buy fresh but perhaps it doesn’t matter? Frozen can be great too and it’s cheaper. Read this and let me know what you think.
- 1 to 2 salmon fillets
- olive oil
- lemon pepper seasoning
- smoked paprika
- sautéed spiralized butternut squash and/or zucchini noodles
- fresh parsley, finely diced
- lime wedges
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Prep and line a baking sheet. If desired, pat your salmon filet gently with a paper towel. Lightly drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil, season with lemon pepper seasoning from Penzeys Spices and some smoked paprika.
- Bake in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon filet. Remove from oven. Serve on sautéed spiralized butternut squash and/or zucchini noodles and garnish with fresh parsley and serve with a lime wedge. Enjoy!
