With a name like Jammin Salmon, you know it HAS to be good! No seriously. This is one of the easiest, most delicious salmon recipes I've ever eaten! AND it can be on the dinner table in less than 30 minutes. Impressive!
I've been trying to get more salmon into mine and my husband's diet.
Since salmon is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, and it's a great source of protein, I'm more than happy to incorporate this fast and easy salmon recipe into my menu plan on a semi-regular basis.
**Please Note - The printable recipe card with detailed instructions, complete ingredient measurements, and nutritional information for making Jammin Salmon is available at the end of this post.
The ingredient list;
- Salmon Fillets (approximately 6 ounces each)
- Low Sugar Strawberry Jam
- Olive Oil
- Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
- Salt and Pepper
Additional jam flavor suggestions for Jammin salmon;
- Orange Marmalade
- I recommend using a low sugar, or sugar-free jam, but the choice is yours.
Why this recipe works;
I haven't always been a salmon lover.
To me, the flavor has always been on the strong side and a little "fishier" in taste than I usually enjoy.
However, as time goes by, I'm becoming more, and more of a salmon lover and I've grown to appreciate it's unique flavor and meaty texture.
With this recipe for 4 Ingredient Jammin Salmon, the sweetness of the strawberry jam along with the little bit of heat from the crushed red pepper flakes marries beautifully with the strong, but not overpowering flavor of the salmon.
This recipe idea came to me in the middle of the night, so I knew it was going to be a winner. Sometimes the best things in life have a way of finding you all on their own, and when you're not trying to find them. 🙂
