Sabroso Saturday: Bikini Season Baked Salmon

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health.


I’m so excited! I received the “100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know” from Glamour. As a Glammy Glambassador, I was given a copy to review before it hit stores. I haven’t had time to create any of the recipes but have already circled a few to make, including today’s recipe.  I love it because of it’s simplicity and heart healthy omega-3s.

They also have a recipe they claim can get you engaged, called The Engagement Chicken. You can see the story behind the chicken below.

With those testimonies, I’m not sure I want to make it anytime soon! I think I’ll wait till I meet the almost perfect man 😉

So on to today’s featured Sabroso Saturday recipe, the Bikini Season Baked Salmon, which I copied from their book.


Bikini Season Baked Salmon


  • Four 8 ounce skin -on salmon fillets
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers



  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Put the salmon skin-side down in a ceramic or glass baking pan. Rub the salmon fillets with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Let the salmon sit in the pan for 10 minutes.
  2. Drizzle the white wine over the salmon, then sprinkle 1/4 cup parsley on top; save the remaining parsley to use later. Put the pan in the oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the salmon fillets are opaque.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the lemon juice, capers, remaining parsley, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, Top each salmon fillet with lemon juice mixture and serve immediately.


That’s it!

You’re done. Simple and sweet. But don’t let that fool you! This receta/recipe is jam packed with heart-healthy omega-3s. Why is that important? Because omega-3s helps your body burn fat much quicker so enjoy it with gusto!

Till next week, eat hearty, eat healthy and eat well!  

¡Buen provecho!

    YUM! I’d like to try some baked salmon right about now. The citrus juice will be my taste of summer.

    PS – I have made engagement chicken, but not for a man. I might have to write a post about it.

    I love the last line in the video: “This cookbook is for every woman knows life, love and relationships may be complicated but cooking comes with instructions”. So true!

    I love the story behind the engagement chicken. Very funny! Not sure if I want to make that for a dinner party though. I don’t want to steal anyone’s husband. lol j/k 😉

    I can’t for you to share more recipes. Does book include any nutritional info with each recipe?
