  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
  • ½ cup Sesame Ginger salad dressing I used Newman’s Own brand
  • Salt and pepper


  • Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place fish in a large zip-top freezer bag. Pour dressing into the bag, seal, and gently toss to coat. Place bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • To Bake in the Oven: Thaw salmon in the refrigerator overnight. Allow fish to sit on the counter and come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before baking.
  • Remove salmon from the bag and discard remaining marinade. Place salmon on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.


Note: You can also grill the salmon if you prefer!
For serving: This salmon is perfect served with brown rice or quinoa and steamed broccoli or mixed vegetables (try the microwaveable frozen pouches for convenience).
