I just love making salmon and am always trying to come up with new recipes. This recipe for gluten-free garlic butter baked salmon just stuck. In fact, after I made it, I knew it would soon be in heavy rotation around here.
Salmon is a fatty fish that is loaded with healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Our bodies cannot produce omega-3s, we must consume them from food. Salmon is one of the best sources for omega-3s and I’m so glad that it is – because salmon is delicious.
When you feed your family salmon, you are giving them a boost of healthy fats, which is so important to deterring inflammation, boosting the brain (our brains are made of fat!) and keeping us healthy.
This particular salmon recipe is tangy (thanks to the white wine), buttery (thanks to the butter) and oh-so-garlicky (thanks to the fresh minced garlic). It’s definitely a palate pleaser.
When choosing a salmon, look for fish that are wild caught – or at the very least – ones raised without antibiotics. Believe it or not, a lot of our world’s antibiotic supply is given to fish prophylactically, meaning it’s given to them to prevent illness even if they don’t have an infection. You don’t need to eat fish consumed by antibiotics, so avoid farmed fish. Fresh, wild caught fish are your best options.
I served this gluten-free garlic butter salmon recipe alongside some roasted carrots and brown rice. Yum. Yum. Yum.
