Fancy fish?! Not so much! I used to see pictures of healthy and – what I thought to be – elaborate meals, but didn’t want to spend 1-2 hours prepping for just one meal. My solution was not to avoid healthy eating all together, rather to find simple preparation steps that work for me. My food prep style: 1) easy 2) requires few ingredients 3) creates tasty and creative meals.
-Fresh salmon filets (my favorite is wild caught, Atlantic salmon)
-Extra virgin olive oil
-Rice (ie: white, brown, and my favorite – jasmine)
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Cut salmon into desired amounts (I like to do 4-5oz per filet, which is around 25-30g protein)
-Place salmon fillets on baking sheet
-Top fillets with juice of lemon, sea salt and pepper to taste
-Bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked to your liking
-Top fillets with with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (important to do this after to prevent degradation of healthy fats) and another squeeze of lemon juice
-Simultaneously, cook rice & top with a squeeze of lemon juice as well
This meal is a staple for me and this is my favorite way to prep salmon! It’s simple, delicious and nearly impossible to get sick of 😉 Enjoy!
