Salmon is a great source of protein and high in vitamin B. One of the biggest benefits of salmon is that it is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure.
This is one of my favorite ways to cook salmon and I make it very often because it’s very quick and simple.
2 salmon fillets (5 oz. each)
2 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tsp of sesame oil
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, add honey, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Mix wet ingredients well until you have a thick sauce.
- Wrap baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with oil. Place salmon, skin side down and glaze with sauce. Cover salmon with an extra sheet of aluminum foil. Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.
For this recipe, I’m pairing the salmon with Cauliflower & Potato Mash. You can find the recipe with the link below:
