Another healthy baked salmon dish combines pesto, vegetables, bread and salmon. Tear four slices of bread into pieces, and slice up two bell peppers and one red onion. Toss the bread and vegetables with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Add four salmon fillets to the mixture, and bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for eight to 10 minutes. Top the salmon with pesto before serving.

Spicy salmon with bok choy and rice involves glazing the fish with a simple honey mixture before baking. While cooking the rice, cut up the bok choy, and steam it. Mix together 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper in a bowl to make the glaze. Place the salmon fillets on a baking sheet, and broil between 5 and 7 minutes. Brush the glaze on the salmon, and broil for another 3 minutes. Remove the salmon from the oven, and serve it with the rice and bok choy.
