02/10/2016 salmon recipe
Served on its own or in a salad, wrap, or soup, salmon is a healthy and delicious protein choice that is low carb and heart-healthy. Filled with smoked salmon, mushrooms, kale, buckwheat and a plethora of spices, this veggie-centric recipe packs a ton of protein and flavor into your morning eggs. Roast salmon for the last 12 minutes of vegetable cooking time or until cooked to your liking.
Easy to make and an easy way to get a nutritious meal, this sheet pan dinner will help you get your next dinner on the table and cleaned up in no time. Since my salmon fillet here is about one inch thick in its thickest part, it took 10 minutes in total to bake.
My husband & I enjoyed this very much, flavorful, easy to prepare, few ingredients. This is because the salmon’s fat is in the layer just beneath the skin, so when it is cooked with the skin on, the skin soaks up these (healthy) fats. Plate salmon (leaving oil in pan) and drizzle each serving generously with butter sauce, sprinkle with parsley and garnish with lemon slices if desired.
Small fillets and steaks are great for fast weeknight meals, while a whole side of salmon is an easy and elegant main course for a dinner party. I tried this last night and I was super impressed with how tasty and EASY it was! The trick to perfectly cooked salmon is to gently bake the fish in a little liquid — such as wine, stock, or water.
