Baked Salmon with Fresh Salsa

Nothing beats a good salmon fillet for a rich, satisfying meal. This is a complete, tasty and very healthy Paleo meal that everyone will enjoy.


1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 lbs salmon fillets
4 large tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 orange bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 hot chili pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 large clove garlic, thinly sliced
 juice of 3 limes
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Brush the olive oil in a baking pan and lay the salmon in the pan.

In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, cilantro, chili pepper, if using, oregano, and garlic. Add the lime juice and pepper flakes, if using, and toss to mix.

Bake salmon for 10 to 12 minutes. If the salmon is not opaque and flakes when prodded with a fork, bake it for 5 to 7 minutes longer, or until cooked. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
