Looking to incorporate more fish into your diet? Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which lower inflammation and are amazing for brain health, heart health… overall health!
Fish is the perfect protein for weeknights because it bakes super-fast. This recipe will get dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes. How’s that for fast food?
While the salmon bakes, you can quickly steam some fresh or frozen vegetables. I love using thin brown rice noodles for their quick cooking time – you can find noodles that are ready in 2 minutes – they just need to sit in boiling water and you’re good to go!
For the healthiest, best-tasting salmon, try to purchase organic salmon, wild Pacific salmon or other sustainable salmon whenever possible. There are 2 amazing websites you can visit to find out which types of fish are sustainable.
Also, it’s best to cook fresh salmon and other fish the same day you buy it for peak freshness and minimal fishy smell.
Here is a super simple and tasty salmon recipe perfect for a quick weeknight meal.
For a gluten-free meal, choose gluten-free pasta. For primal or low-carb, leave out the noodles and load up on vegetables.
