Baked BBQ salmon with mango salsa, a delicious easy 30 minute baked salmon recipeI’m so excited to be sharing this baked salmon recipe from Jessica Merchant’s new cookbook with you today! Just last week when I shared my list of favorite cookbooks, her first cookbook Seriously Delish was on the list, and I mentioned she was coming out with her second book. I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy (it officially gets released 3/20/2018), and I spent the whole weekend looking at it. It is a gorgeous book, and it’s not just a cookbook, it’s just as the title says: more than 150 everyday recipes and 50 beautify DIYs to nourish your body inside and out. And playlists! There are playlists at the end of the book, and I’ve already downloaded many songs.

Recently, whenever I get a new cookbook, I give it a once over to see what jumps out at me, and then I give it to my husband to look through. I absolutely LOVE seeing what he thinks looks/sounds good and what he’d like to eat.

When he handed me the book back it was covered in post-it notes!!

Basically, everything in this cookbook is screaming ‘make me.’

Salmon is such a great weeknight dinner. It takes only a few minutes to bake, and is really such a powerhouse of nutrition, I always feel good after having salmon for dinner.

I used a center cut salmon and cut it into fillets before baking it because I was going to portion it out for lunches. If making this for a family-style meal, I would have not cut it ahead of time.

This bbq baked salmon is smokey and slightly sweet and the spice rub is sooo good. The mango salsa completes this dish and makes it delicious bite after bite. There’s a lime butter that goes on top of the salmon. It’s so good! I’ve made this twice now, once with the lime butter, and once I was in the middle of a million things and got distracted and forgot to make it. I am happy to report the baked bbq salmon is great both with and without the lime butter.
