Low-FODMAP Baked Salmon

The recipe I'm sharing with you today is my favorite salmon recipe. In fact, it's the recipe I used the first time I cooked salmon years ago. I picked a good one! It's from allrecipes.com. However, I just took a look at the original recipe and realized that my recipe has really morphed over the years. I guess the basics are still there, but I have gradually adjusted some of the ingredients to suit our tastes.

I think the delicious blend of olive oil, basil and lemon makes the salmon very moist and flavorful! Oftentimes I make the marinade the night before and let the salmon marinate overnight. All I have to do the next day is pop it in the oven and make a couple of side dishes. Simple!

Update 05/01/14: I now like to make this recipe now with garlic-infused olive oil, instead of minced garlic, to make it low-FODMAP.

Baked Salmon
Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
serves 4


1/3 cup garlic infused olive oil (see my Quick or Oven-Roasted recipes)
  or extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tsp. dried)
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil (or 1 tsp. dried basil)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
4  4-oz. salmon fillets*


  1. In a glass measuring cup, measure out the garlic-infused olive oil. Add the lemon juice, parsley, basil, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  2. Rinse and pat dry the salmon fillets. Place salmon in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the oil mixture. Shake lightly to evenly distribute the marinade. Refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 375° F. Place fillets on a large piece of aluminum foil. Fold foil to enclose salmon and seal. Place foil packet in a large baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

*I like to use skinless fillets, but skin-on works fine too.

  1. Pan-seared salmon is still the perfect healthier week night meal. It will take extremely little time (10 minutes maximum ), you end up with a perfectly seasoned fillet with deliciously crispy skin.The only small drawbacks: It can get a tiny messy if the oil splatters, and also your kitchen might begin to smell like the sea (that could be good or a lousy thing, based on the individual.) Even now, it is beneficial to have an open window near or a lover over the stove.And start you just seasoning salmon know!Here you came to know stove top salmon,with stunning ingredients
