Here at Lose Baby Weight we are a bit in love with baked salmon at the moment.
This recipe uses fresh limes and parsley to cut through the flavours of the fish to really take it up a notch.
A healthy eating plan should incorporate 2-3 serves of fish each week. Salmon is a great choice as it contains heart loving omega-3’s.
It is a great source of protein and is lower in calories compared to other animal foods.
This dish also contains a stack of healthy veggies, which help to bulk out the meal, adding nutrition and fibre.
Tweak this recipe to your heart’s content. You could try using yellow squash, zucchini, snow peas, thinly sliced red onion, low fat feta or some fresh coriander.
- 4 salmon fillets, around 100g each
- 2 cups of green beans, trimmed and lightly steamed

- Squeeze over the juice of one of the limes, throwing the limes into the pan afterwards.
- Drizzle with the olive oil before adding the tomatoes on top.
- Place the salmon into the pan on top of the veggies and squeeze over the second lime, again adding the lime to the pan afterwards.
