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 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.
