Baked Salmon & Lentils

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


Simple baked salmon is served with mildly-spiced lentils. A healthy and delicious dish!


  • 1 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 salmon filets
  • half a red onion, diced
  • 2 cups cooked lentils
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lemon, quartered


  1. Preheat broiler. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then mist with oil or cooking spray.
  2. Place salmon filets on the baking sheet, and brush each with about 1 teaspoon of the oil. Season liberally with salt and black pepper. Broil for 4-5 minutes, or until cooked through. (Cooking time will depend on the thickness of your salmon.)
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced red onion and saute for 2 minutes until partially cooked. Add the lentils, cumin, coriander, black pepper and salt, and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, or until the lentils are heated through. Remove from heat and stir in fresh cilantro.
  4. Serve lentils topped with the fresh salmon, sprinkled with the juice from the lemons to taste.
