Exclamation This Weeks' Healthiest Food - SALMON


This is one of my absolute favorites and a staple around here. I keep it in the freezer, sliced and individually wrapped. It's so quick, easy, healthy and DELICIOUS!!!! What a winner!

I usually just bake it in the over at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and it's done.

-I bake it with either homemade pesto (basil, olive oil and garlic) smothered on it.

-I bake it with fresh crushed garlic, parsley, onion powder, salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice.

-I bake it with soy sauce, fresh crushed garlic and some SF apricot preserves.

DH and I LOVE Salmon.. I generally cook it with EVOO, a little bit of vinegar (instead of lemon), garlic, onion, dill, rosemary...
sometimes I'll go asian with sesame seeds (which are very good for us too!!) and some ginger, garlic and EVOO...
I usually bake it though...once in a while I'll do it in a skillet but it always comes out moist and tender after baking. And I can just leave it in the oven to cook.. When I do stovetop, unless its rice or noodles, I get very impatient..
I was wondering where the weekly food came from, I get the newsletters..just signed up this weekend and I love it!!

The FIRST challenge:
-Get to 175
-Exercise 3x/wk for 4 wks!

Broiling is another great way to cook salmon -- I get a huge salmon slab, rinse and pat it dry, then broil it under direct heat for about 9 minutes. It will depend on the thickness of your filet and how "done" you like it, though. My family loves sashimi, so we tend to eat it rare. It's fast and turns out juicy and wonderful. We serve with steamed rice, wilted spinach, soy sauce and pickled ginger.

I broil it, too.

If you spray a little oil on a piece of fish, sprinkle lightly with salt, and then let it rest a bit, the fish will have a nice crunchy surface. Something to do with drawing the sugars to the surface so they caramelize.

I use kosher salt to keep the sodium down.

My boyfriend worked at a cannery in Alaska last summer, caught a lot of salmon!

I like salmon patties, they are my fav.

I used to make salmon patties fairly often, loved them.

Now I cook the fillets in a pan with a little lemon, salt, and pepper. Thanks for the other recipe ideas! They sound wonderful!

I looooove salmon! I used to live near Seattle, where the salmon was (usually) fresh and delicious, but here in the Chicago suburbs it's dry and previously frozen and no restaurant knows how to cook it.
Here's one of my favorite salmon recipes:

Salmon steak
Can of artichoke hearts (plain or marinated, whatever you like)
Slices of onion
Lemon slice or juice (optional)
Black pepper and salt.

Take a largish square of aluminum foil, put the salmon in the middle, place onion slices on top, sprinkle with dill and salt and pepper (as much as you like). Drain the artichoke hearts and dump them on top of the salmon. Sprinkle with lemon juice or put a slice or two on top. Close the foil to form a bag. Bake at 325-375 F for 20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked.

This is very filling, and very good. You can add squash to the bag, broccoli, or whatever other vegetable you like. It's good served with whole-wheat spaghetti with dill, or salad, or steamed vegetables.
