Baked Salmon with Brussel Sprouts
  • Cooking Time: 40 mins
  • Servings: 3-4
  • Preparation Time: 10 mins
  • 1 lb Salmon filet whole
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lb Brussel Sprouts
  • Olive oil (around 4 Tbsp)
  • Salt (around 2 tsp)
  • Pepper (around 1 tsp)
  • Cayenne – just a dash
  • Garlic powder – just a few dashes
  • For Tarragon Cream Sauce:
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ lemon squeezed
  • 1 Tbsp dried tarragon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a casserole or baking dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. If preferred (remove skin from the salmon—it doesn’t come out enjoyably crispy in this recipe.
  3. Slice Lemon in thin rounds.
  4. Chop 1 lb of Brussel Sprouts in half and remove stem.
  5. Add sprouts to the pan and add generous amount salt, pepper, garlic, cayenne and olive oil.
  6. Season the top of the salmon generously with salt, about 1/2 tsp for a 1lb piece. I don't season the bottom of the fish, since I discard the skin.
  7. Add freshly ground black pepper to the salmon, about 1/4 tsp, or to your taste.
  8. Add Lemon slices to the top of salmon and pop it in the oven for 25-30 minutes for medium and nice, crispy sprouts!
  9. Let the salmon set for 3 minutes and dollop your sauce on. Serve with extra lemon after slicing down the middle. Enjoy!
