Salmon is one of the healthiest foods on the planet, loaded with good fats, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein. Cooking fish can seem intimidating, but it’s not as hard to make at home as you may think. Make it in the oven for easy clean up and save your kitchen from the dreaded “fishy” smell. This is an easy 3 ingredient dish. I've given some options to add variations too.
Lemon Baked Salmon
- 2 Salmon Filets
- 1 lemon
- olive oil
Take 2 salmon filets and add a small amount of olive oil to both sides. Roll the filets in some almond meal if you want to create a crust/breading-type topping (to create almond meal just take almonds and put them in the blender). Add fresh squeezed lemon juice, salt, and pepper generously. Bake in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 12 minutes (check at about 10 minutes to see if it's cooked enough for your liking - when poked with a fork the salmon should “flake”). Add some fresh chopped dill and parsley and pair with some vegetables, salad, or a whole grain like quinoa.
You can't get much easier than that.
