BAKED HONEY GARLIC SALMON
Before I start on how to make the Baked Honey Garlic Salmon, I want to emphasize how important it is to add salmon to your weekly meals. Salmon is one of the best sources of Omega 3 fatty acid. It can reduce the risk of fatal heart disease by 40%! Salmon is also very high in protein and a rich source of vitamin B. Frequent consumption of salmon may also help brain function as well as reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. The great thing about salmon is, it has a delicious taste and not too fishy unlike other types of fish. It can be prepared in many ways and added to dishes like pasta, rice salads, wraps and much more.
HOW TO MAKE THE BAKED HONEY GARLIC SALMON
I always choose a great variety of salmon. Wild caught are the best but you can also get regular salmon that’s raised without antibiotics. Pat dry the piece of salmon and place it in a foil wrap lined on a sheet pan.
Prepare the dressing and pour over the salmon. You can cover the salmon and let it marinate in the fridge if you have time or simple just marinate and then cook in the oven right away.
I recommend cooking your salmon in a preheated 400 degree oven, uncovered for about 10 minutes and then turn off the oven heat. Cover with aluminum foil and let it sit in the oven for another 5-7 minutes before serving!
WAYS TO SERVE THIS DISH:
You can serve with a side of veggies, pasta, potatoes, anything you prefer depending on the type of diet you follow. For my family I always make some type of veggie, usually broccoli or asparagus and I roast some potatoes. I also serve it with some sort of salad because my kids love all types of salad especially avocado salads.
