I came across the idea of slow baked salmon while reading Mark Sisson’s Keto Reset Diet. I’ve been following a Keto Diet recently and I was excited to see such variety in Sisson’s book. A lot of recipes have a lot of ground beef and a lot of cheese and we don’t eat like that most days.

We love salmon. It’s nice to have several great cooking techniques and recipes under my belt. And it’s nice to know at the end of a long day you won’t end up with rubbery salmon.

Let’s be honest, there’s nothing delicious about over cooked salmon. And when overcooked you lose a ton of the nutritional value. By the way, that’s not just when it comes to salmon but vegetables and many other foods.

Why Slow Bake?

Baking salmon on a low temperate over a longer period of time creates the perfect textured salmon. The low temperature allows the fat to melt into the flesh of the salmon. This leaves the salmon soft, moist and buttery.

Slow baking is how you can get all the tasty and nutritional goodness out of salmon. And guess what? Slow baked salmon still only takes about 15 to 20 minutes in the oven. Which means you can have a complete dinner on the table in 30 minutes. Yippee!!

When I’m short on time but I need to get dinner done quickly (and I obviously forgot to take something out of the freezer) I make fish/ seafood or beans. Pasta Puttanesca or a delicious bean burgers are my go to recipes when short on time.
