My kids love this salmon recipe.  I love it because it is healthy, can be prepared and served in under 30 minutes, and the clean-up is super easy when you use parchment paper.  Salmon is our "reset food".  When we have enjoyed a weekend of indulgences I like to start the week with a "reset food":  whole food that makes you feel clean inside and out and gives you an opportunity to start fresh.

Ingredients:

  • parchment paper
  • 6 small salmon fillets
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • drizzle extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ fresh lemon
  • 1 tsp each of dried basil, parsley, dill
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle salt and pepper on salmon fillets.
  3. Lightly brush EVOO on salmon fillets.
  4. Sprinkle on dried oregano.
  5. Cook the salmon for 22-30 minutes until the salmon is easy to flake with a fork.
  6. Squeeze lemon juice on fillets.
  7. Sprinkle on dried, basil, parsley, dill and crushed red pepper.

 

Tips:

  1. Serve with your favorite carbohydrate and vegetable.
  2. We like to purchase our salmon from Whole Foods due to their sustainable seafood pledge
  3. I use Reynolds Kitchens Cookie Baking Sheets, Pre-Cut Parchment Paper.  It makes clean-up a breeze.
  4. I like to use a Zulay citrus squeezer.  It helps me get the last drop out of every lemon.
