I love eating salmon and we often eat it once or twice a week for dinner. You always salmon listed in magazines and websites on the list of “superfoods” and the “10 best foods you should eat so you never age,” etc.
There are good reasons why salmon makes the list. It’s a great source of protein, Omega-3 fatty acides (which promote joint and skin health), and Vitamins B2, B12 and D. It’s also low in fat and mercury.
However, I always prepare it the same way – simply broiled. It’s super easy and delicious this way – just some olive oil, salt and pepper and then put it in my toaster oven (<– I LOVE my toaster oven!) to broil for 8 minutes. It usually turns out like this, minus the kale salad. I was being fancy that night.
I’m a creature of habit. It’s easier that way, isn’t it? But there are times when I want to break free of the routine and flex some creative muscles. I’ve rounded up some great salmon recipes – some of which I’ve tried and some that I can’t wait to try.
