  • 1 lb ButcherBox Salmon (about 4 salmon filets)

Lemon Rosemary

Spicy Asian

Chili Lime

Mustard Garlic


  • In separate bowls, whisk together marinades. Pour into individual ziploc bags. Place 1 large piece of salmon (about 4-6oz salmon) with each marinade. Carefully try to squeeze out air from the bag.

In the Oven:

  • Allow the salmon a minimum of 30 minutes to marinate (overnight is best for maximum flavor).
  • Preheat oven to 400 + prepare a lined baking sheet. Lay salmon pieces on the sheet side by side. Bake for 15-20 minutes until salmon flakes easily.
  • Eat immediately, or allow salmon to cool for 5 minutes + store in containers with veggies/side for meal prepping

On the grill:

  • Preheat grill to 375. Lay salmon in baking dish and pour marinade over it. Allow salmon to marinate for at least 30 minutes. (overnight is best)
  • Lay salmon on grilling mat or wrap in a piece of aluminum foil. Cook for 15 minutes. Do not flip! You can test to see if the salmon is done by seeing if it flakes with a fork.
  • Eat immediately, or allow salmon to cool for 5 minutes + store in containers with veggies/side for meal prepping

If freezing:

  • Transfer the individual bags to the freezer.
  • Lay flat in freezer. To defrost, remove from freezer 24 hours in advance + place in refrigerator.
  • Allow to defrost + cook per directions above
