Momma Chef’s Herbed Salmon

mommachef, recipe, salmon, 6 minute recipe, low carb, low sugar, low calorie


This is a fabulous weeknight family meal, simple and tasty. I suggest keeping the marinade stocked in your refrigerator. And yes, since many of you have asked, the story in my “tips” about not tending to my son who had just peed in the basement for the sake of not over-cooking the salmon is absolutely true! For those of you who have girls, you might not understand that this really does happen. For those of you with boys, welcome to the club  Enjoy!




1 ½-2 Pounds boneless Salmon Filet

½ tsp Kosher Salt

1 tablespoon Brown Sugar

½ tablespoon Chile Powder

¼ cup Whole Foods Mediterranean Herb Marinade



Mix together dry ingredients and rub on salmon. Pour marinade over salmon and bake at 350 uncovered for 20 minutes. That’s will have the best salmon ever!



  1. If you are using skin-on salmon, spray pan with Pam so skin won’t stick to pan
  2. If you can’t find the Whole Foods Marinade, use ¼ cup olive oil and a squirt of lemon juice
  3. If you want this to look fancy, cut up some lemon slices and serve on the side
  4. If after 20 minutes your timer beeps that the salmon is ready to come out of the oven and at the same time you hear your kids screaming the basement that your youngest is peeing on the carpet, you screw the peeing situation and you take the salmon OUT of the oven…no matter what, you don’t overcook salmon!

MomaChef, Recipe, 6 minute prepA bit about Momma Chef:  I am a Chicago mom of three active boys (ages 12, 8 and 5).  Although I often feel like I’m struggling with some aspect of parenting, my one sanctuary is the kitchen. My children liked different foods and were constantly requesting a variety of things for dinner. I used to tell them, “I am not an octopus with eight arms who can make eight different meals.” Over time, I figured out a way to make food they all love by developing easy, quick recipes. That led to the creation of my blog, Momma Chef.
