Heart-Healthy Baked Salmon
Just in time for date night: A simple and delicious salmon recipe that your honey is sure to love.
Makes 4 servings
- 4 (4-ounce) certified wild-caught salmon fillets, such as wild Alaskan. (You can use one 2 to 3-pound salmon fillet, all one long piece, instead.)
- 3 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 TBSP sesame seeds (white, black or a mixture)
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9x13 baking pan with 1 TBSP olive oil. Place salmon skin-side down on top of the olive oil. In small bowl, mix remaining 2 TBSP of olive oil with the soy sauce and the lemon juice and stir. Pour over salmon. Sprinkle sesame seeds evenly over the top of the salmon (use fingers to press into the fish). Bake covered at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until desired wellness. Remove foil and cook uncovered five minutes more on broil if you like the top a little more well-done.
Serve warm with a side of your favorite cooked greens (I like roasted broccoli or asparagus) or serve salmon at room temperature, sliced on top of a spring mix salad – no dressing needed!
