Get Your Fatty Acids
Fish is a great protein packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as lots of vitamins and minerals. Research shows that it is linked to reducing inflammation in the body and lowering risk of heart disease. Read more about it in this article from the Mayo Clinic.
I am trying to incorporate two servings of fish each week into my diet, so I’ve been doing a lot of recipe experiments. This week, I found a winner. Hopefully you’ll love it as much as my family did. 🙂
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of light mayo, 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard, juice of one lemon, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt/pepper. (you can also add chopped parsley, totally optional)
Line your tray with aluminum foil, spray with non-stick spray.
Cover your pieces of salmon (approx. three 4 oz. pieces) with your mixture.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Be sure not to overcook.
I served this with a cucumber/tomato salad with balsamic vinaigrette and roasted Brussels sprouts.
