I have 9 of the best healthy baked fish recipes that are quick and easy to make. I think you’ll love the variety and ease of these recipes.
We all know that fish is good for us. It’s low in fat and high in heart-healthy Omega 3 fish oil, which is good for your heart. When fish is baked it is the healthiest plus baking fish is really quick and easy. That’s why I put together these recipes. Each recipe is either Clean Eating, gluten-free or both.
I love all kinds of fish, but I have always had a hard time knowing how to cook it to make it both still healthy and taste good. Baking fish is a really good way to go. It is easy and generally is healthy and I think it’s the hardest way to mess up fish.
There is a large variety so you should be able to find more than one new recipe you like. I am excited to find so many good recipes. My usual way of making it is to grill a fish fillet on my small Lean Fat Grillin’ Machine with some lemon pepper on it.
I eat it with brown rice and vegetables or make a sandwich. If I’m feeling really fancy, I’ll cut up some lemon wedges and squirt some fresh lemon over my fish and in my water.
Salmon is my favorite, but with the price of everything rising so much, I’m excited to try a lot of other kinds of fish also. What’s your favorite type of fish?
Variety is the spice of life you know! Are you ready to try all of these recipes too? Let me know how they turn out.

Slow Baked Chili Salmon – The Endless Meal
Salmon or Trout Fillet – Chili Powder – Smoked Paprika – Oregano – Real Salt – Olive Oil – Fresh Dill
This salmon is coated with chili spices to give it a little spicy flavor. But the real secret to this delicious recipe is how it’s baked. Most fish recipes say to bake it for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. If you don’t keep a very close eye on it, the fish will turn out dry and not as good as it could be. This salmon is cooked on 270 degrees for 30 minutes. The result is a tender moist fish. Ever thought of eating salmon leftover cold? Well, Kristen says to never heat it up, just eat it cold and you’ll be surprised how wonderful it is. She gives further instructions so check them out.
