Lemon Butter Seared Salmon Recipe – 5 Smart Points

Lemon Butter Seared Salmon

Every time I cook salmon, I ask myself why I don’t make it more often. It’s an easy fish to work with, it’s loaded with nutrients and heart healthy fats, and everyone in my family will eat it. This simple Lemon Butter Seared Salmon Recipe is a classic — just a few simple ingredients, but a wonderful, healthy meal that can be accomplished in minutes. I usually tend to roast salmon, but this pan fried version gives such a nice crispiness to the outer layer. This recipe also requires little prep, which is great for the days when my time is minimal.

Salmon Curry Recipe – 9 Smart Points

Salmon Curry

I used to cook a lot of recipes with coconut milk, but I have been reluctant to do so ever since the new Weight Watchers Smart Points plan came into effect. Coconut milk is high in saturated fat, so I was concerned that it would raise the Smart Points value of my recipe too much. But I was pleasantly surprised when this Salmon Curry recipe turned out to be less Points than I anticipated! Sometimes, you just gotta eat the good stuff and spend the extra Point or two. And this dish is definitely worth it. Plus, it’s such a fast and easy meal to cook, and works excellently with frozen salmon (which I prefer to buy because it costs less!). The salmon is perfectly poached in the coconut milk, and the mild curry flavor was just the right amount without being too spicy, so my kids could enjoy it as well. I had this on the table in less than 30 minutes, and it was insanely good! For the kids and my husband, I served it over quinoa, and for myself, I served it over cauliflower rice in order to avoid having to add more Points. Truly, the cauliflower rice was delicious! I actually liked it even better than the quinoa. This was such a fantastically flavorful and healthy meal that left me feeling completely satisfied. So glad I decided to get back on the coconut milk train! Enjoy.

Honey Lime Salmon Recipe – 5 Smart Points

Honey Lime Salmon

Today, my kids asked me to post about their favorite salmon recipe – my Honey Lime Salmon. Roasted salmon is a great meal option for busy days when I’ve had little to no time to prep, because it cooks so quickly. Plus, this particular Weight Watchers salmon recipe is easy to follow, and requires just a handful of ingredients. So with little fuss, I can get a healthy and delicious meal on the table that the whole family enjoys. I often will throw some chopped veggies on the baking pan to cook along with salmon, and I’ll toss them with any extra honey lime sauce I may have. Then it becomes a simple, one pan meal, which means less to clean up. Yay! I’ve also served this over some fresh steamed rice, if I’m looking to add some carbs to the meal. But it’s such a tasty and easy meal, you’ll find this recipe becoming one of your go-to’s too.

Broiled Miso Ginger Salmon Recipe – 6 Smart Points

Broiled Miso Ginger Salmon

This Miso Ginger Salmon is one of my most favorite dishes at a local Japanese restaurant. It’s the perfect blend of salty and tangy, and works like a dream with the slightly sweet and smoky salmon. Ideally, I’d cook this on a grill, but when I’m too busy (or lazy) to head out to my grill, a simple broiling in the oven works fantastically! I love giving the fish a nice charred edge, and marinating the salmon before hand really helps give it excellent flavor. Serve over steamed rice alongside some roasted vegetables or your favorite Asian-style salad.
