If you’re anything like me, you’ve ruined many a dinner because you have overcooked your salmon. But I have the solution for you! And I guarantee it will work! It’s completely foolproof.
Here are your ingredients: Salmon filet (I actually got a package of 2 fillets from the fish and meat section of Trader Joe’s) Olive Oil Salt
Here are your directions:
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450 ˚F.
Meanwhile, place salmon filet on baking sheet. Drizzle about 2-3 teaspoons olive oil over the salmon, and gently rub oil over all surfaces.
Sprinkle with salt.
Bake salmon in 450˚F oven for 10 minutes, exactly. Serve with a wedge of lemon.
And that’s it!
You’ve just gone gourmet without even breaking a sweat! Serve with roasted broccoli and a side of farro for a balanced meal.
Why: We all know that dairy products are rich in calcium and vitamin D…But did you know that salmon is a healthy source of these two micronutrients as well? What’s even better about this combo found in salmon is that vitamin D increases calcium absorption. Because calcium absorption decreases with age for both men and women, being mindful of eating foods rich in vitamin D will help increase calcium absorption in the body. Before you reach for that extra glass of milk, remember that salmon has almost 4 times the amount of vitamin D than fortified milk!
