When I’m craving a salad that’s not only delicious and bursting with flavors, but also hearty, very satisfying, and extremely nutritious, I turn to this Smoked Salmon and Lentil Salad. I usually always keep a few hardboiled eggs in the fridge, and with minimal prep, this salad can be put together quickly and easily. Loaded with protein, fiber and Omega-3’s, this salad is great for a heart healthy lunch idea! You can use leftover cooked salmon with this too, if you prefer, but I love to treat myself to some smoked salmon on occasion. And it works especially well with the tahini sauce in this dish. I also like to thin out the tahini sauce with some water and/or lemon juice, as the Trader Joe’s one I use is really thick. At just 7 Points + for the whole, huge salad, this Weight Watchers Recipe is sure to become a favorite of yours, too.
While it may officially be fall, we’ve been having a heat wave here in Southern California, so I’ve been doing my best to take advantage of last minute summer grilling! One of my easiest, healthiest, and most delicious Weight Watchers grilling recipes is this Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa. The creaminess of the avocado and the moist, buttery avocado are a perfect contrast to the tangy lime and spicy jalapeño. The flavors are bold and delicious, yet this healthy meal is only 8 Points + per serving. Pair it with steamed brown rice or quinoa and roasted vegetables for a complete meal.
I have recently created my new, most favorite Weight Watchers Salmon Recipe ever….this Almond Breaded Salmon is nothing short of mouth-watering perfection. The tender and moist salmon is topped with a lemony, buttery almond based breading that literally just melts in your mouth. For the breading, I used a combination of almond meal (which I found at Trader Joe’s) and panko breadcrumbs for an incredibly soft, nutty coating, that is loaded with fiber and heart healthy fats. If you can’t find almond meal, just place whole, raw almonds in a food processor, and process until they become breadcrumb-like in texture. Each of serving is just 7 Points +, so serve it with some roasted veggies and/or a light salad or a soup for a very satisfying meal. This Almond Breaded Salmon is a must make!
This Italian Marinated Salmon with Couscous Recipe is a perfect, easy and healthy weeknight dinner recipe. The salmon turns out so moist and flaky with the most delicious flavor. And when served over the whole wheat couscous, it makes for a very satisfying dish. If you are in a pinch, you can make this Weight Watchers salmon recipe even easier by just using a bottle of light Italian salad dressing instead of making the marinade from scratch. But since I like to avoid processed foods and preservatives when I can, I prefer to make the marinade myself. Each serving is just 8 Points +, and it pairs nicely with a light salad or roasted vegetables for a complete meal. Enjoy!
Gorton’s has made my life easier (and tastier!) once again with their new Simply Bake line of frozen fish fillets.

You just pop that baby into the oven, and voila, a delicious, healthy, low Points fish dinner in just minutes. This is the perfect Weight Watchers food for busy weeknights when you want to get something healthy and tasty on the table, but are seriously pressed for time. Gorton’s does all the work for you. They are currently available in 3 different varieties: Salmon, Tilapia, and Haddock in Garlic and Herb Butter. Each serving is just 3 Points + and less than 150 calories.
We all know the incredible health benefits of salmon, but if you aren’t a big fan of this Omega 3 packed fish, then getting those recommended servings can be tough. I, myself, do not enjoy the fishy taste of salmon and always strive to create salmon recipes that don’t taste too, well, salmon-y. That’s why I LOVE this simple, light Lemon Garlic Salmon Recipe. It’s incredibly easy to prepare, is just 5 Points + per serving, and it tastes fantastic. The lemon and garlic help eliminate most of the fishy taste, yet aren’t overpowering. I paired this Weight Watchers salmon recipe with some roasted Broccolini and whole wheat Israeli couscous. Delicious, easy, and low in Weight Watchers Points. And if you need to make this for a larger crown, it’s really easy to double or triple the recipe.
This Spicy Maple Glazed Salmon Recipe is a perfect summer dinner idea! The maple glaze is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy, and it’s a great contrast to the flavor of the salmon. Topped with fresh pineapple and jalapeno, it gets a nice touch of heat and tartness. Served over the soft and mild polenta, you get a very satisfying meal. Pair it with a light salad or roasted vegetables for a complete dinner. It’s a very easy dish to prepare and it delivers a wonderfully fresh new way to get in those important salmon servings. I’m not really a fan of fish that tastes “fishy”, so this low calorie salmon recipe was perfect for me. I will absolutely be adding this to my rotation of Weight Watchers Salmon Recipes. Enjoy!
I love eating healthy fish recipes, and there’s question that salmon is a huge nutritional powerhouse, yet I’m not in love with the taste of salmon. So when I eat it, I need a fabulous sauce to balance the taste of the fish. This Broiled Salmon in Wine Dijon Sauce fits the bill perfectly. It has just the right amount of butter that adds the silky base to the sauce but yet is still low in Weight Watchers Points. The tang of the wine and Dijon work perfectly with the butter to create a most delicious sauce, which is truly an excellent complement to the fish. Make sure to serve the salmon over rice or with some roasted veggies to sop of all that delectable sauce! And at just 6 Points + per serving, this makes for a wonderful Weight Watchers salmon recipe that is incredibly quick and easy to prepare.
Here’s another easy and delicious way to enjoy some heart healthy salmon…with a fantastic Romesco sauce pour over it! Not only is this an incredibly flavorful salmon recipe that is just 7 Points + per serving, but it’s loaded with nutrients and vitamins too. I used zucchini in the recipe, but you can grill just about any other vegetable you want, if you prefer something different. I’ve made it with eggplants, asparagus and sauteed spinach, and it worked really with all of those. The Romesco sauce is really versatile and would also work well over chicken or eggs. And if you want to spend a few extra points, serve this salmon recipe over a grilled baguette slice…it’s soooooo good! This would make the perfect summer Weight Watchers recipe for that outdoor BBQ, and I definitely recommend giving it a try. it can also be done easily on a grill pan, if it’s too cold or rainy outside to barbeque. Enjoy!
I haven’t always been a big fan of salmon, or any other fish that, well, tastes like fish. But it many instances, I have had salmon prepared a certain way so that the fish flavor was barely there, and the sauce was just so amazing, I would have eaten just about anything that was covered in. This Chili Glazed Salmon with Siracha Cream Sauce Recipe is one of those instances. I had some fresh salmon on hand, and went to work creating a deliciously sweet chili glaze sauce, and then went a step further and made a quick Siracha cream sauce. The combination of the two flavors was excellent, and my husband and I both really enjoyed this Weight Watchers salmon recipe. I’m so happy that I’ve found another great way to get more salmon in my diet! Enjoy.
I’ve always known that the health benefits of salmon are substantial, but sometimes salmon just tastes too fishy and so I tend to find myself shying away from it. This Ginger Soy Salmon recipe, however, is one of the best tasting and easiest salmon recipes I’ve ever tried. The basics of this recipe have been around for a while and is mostly well-known, but I created my own version, and wanted to share it with all of, in case any of you aren’t familiar with this popular salmon recipe. The ginger, soy and garlic marinade really work perfectly with the salmon and give it some amazing flavor without affecting the Points + value. Each serving is just 5 Points +, making this an excellent Weight Watchers dinner recipe choice. Pair it with a salad and some quinoa or rice, and you’ve got one insanely healthy and light dinner that is also pretty filling. If you want to incorporate some more salmon into your diet, then this Ginger Soy Salmon Recipe is a must try.
With two young kids at home, I’m all about quick and easy meals that can be made in one pot and require very little prep work (which equals very little cleanup too!), yet are still healthy and delicious. This sauteed salmon recipe fits the bill perfectly. Not only is it fast and easy to make, it’s a wonderfully flavorful way to make salmon. The tomatoes keep it nice and moist, and the acidity helps to balance out the slight fishy taste of salmon. The chickpeas add some fiber and fantastic texture, while also helping to bulk up the dish and make it more filling. And with just 7 Points + per serving, it’s a great Weight Watchers dinner recipe that I can prepare in a pinch (so I can avoid calling Pizza Hut instead) I served my Sauteed Salmon with Tomatoes and Chickpeas with a side of rice and salad, making a very complete and satisfying meal. It was perfect! Definitely a great low calorie salmon recipe that the whole family enjoyed.
