If you’re like me, then the two things you want most out of your dinner meal are: fast and healthy. We are encouraged to eat fish at least once a week. Salmon, in particular, is a pot of gold when it comes to the vital nutrients we need. The omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon are great for eye health, brain health, and heart health, as well as reducing overall inflammation in the body. While the pre-cut fillets of salmon may be enticing since they are already perfectly portioned, you will often find that it is much cheaper to purchase the salmon whole and sliced by the pound.
- • Salmon (fresh preferred)
- • Mayonnaise (I prefer my homemade mayo or you can use a store-bought olive oil mayo variety)
- • Fresh dill, chopped
- • Salt to taste
- Pre-heat oven to 450oF. Meanwhile, gently season salmon with a sprinkle of salt. Use a spatula to spread a thin layer of mayo over top of salmon. Complete recipe by adding an even layer of fresh dill on top.
- Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Serve with your favorite healthy side dishes and enjoy!
