If there is one food I can recommend that you consume weekly its WILD salmon. Wild (not farmed) Salmon is a super nutrient dense fish packed with protein, omega-3s and other healthy nutrients – plus its easy to bake up in the oven.
Growing up I did not eat much fish but now as an adult I trained my taste buds to like salmon especially when its prepared this way! The key is to let the fish marinate for a few hours and be sure to have plenty of fresh lemons on hand to squeeze on top once its finished.
When it comes to purchasing salmon purchase only WILD CAUGHT and sustainable harvested. (HERE is where I purchase wild salmon.) In general, look for salmon whose skin is bright silvery, and whose flesh is shiny, tender, and brightly-colored.
LEMON TERIYAKI SALMON
Coconut Secret Teriyaki Sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place all salmon filets in large ziplock bag. Pour in 1 cup teriyaki sauce and 1 cup ginger and sesame dressing. Place salmon face down in marinade and skin side up. Marinate 3-5 hours. (I like to do this first thing in the morn so its all ready to cook later in the day)
When ready to cook place salmon skin side down in glass baking dish and bake for 30 min or until golden color.
Remove salmon from oven and place on serving plate. Generously squeeze lemon on top and serve with sliced lemons (makes it look pretty!)
Be Well! 🙂
