#HealthHack lemony spring salmon


Salmon with lemony herbs and tomatoes from the farmers market!

First recipe in the books! I love a spring infused salmon with freshly squeezed lemon, any and all herbs are welcome and necessary, and a good sprinkling of pepper and good quality sea salt will do the trick!


In the effort to increase my Omega-3s intake, as they can only be found in the food we eat and are essential parts of lipid membranes that surround each cell in your body. For more info on Omega-3 fatty acids, visit this site https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Omega3FattyAcids-Consumer/ to take a glance at how much you should be consuming per day. Increased Omega-3 levels will help increase energy balance throughout the day, as well as healthy skin and joints, brain power, etc.


Onto the recipe!


Spring Lemon & Herb Salmon Prep Time 10 min


Ingredients:

-1 serving of wild-caught Alaskan salmon, preferably not farm raised for greater nutrient intake

-2-3 tablespoon olive oil, +1 for pan

-1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar

-1 lemon (zest optional, but I recommend)

-Herbs of choice (I bought fresh basil from the market, I love dill, thyme, oregano, parsley, rosemary, to name a few must haves on salmon!)

-Sea salt and pepper to taste


Directions:

  1. turn stove top on med-high and add 1 T olive oil to pan

  2. coat salmon with olive oil then herbs and red wine vinegar

  3. Let salmon sit on pan for 4-7 minutes, or until it looks cooked thoroughly on top. Remember that it continues to cook when you turn the pan off, and even when you take it off and place it on a plate afterwards.

  4. Remember: zest is optional or an added tang

  5. Enjoy! I love a good balsamic salad with extra veggies and avocado!
