Herbal Baked Salmon


Here is a recipe for Herbal Baked Salmon Fillet with vegetables in foil.

My Norwegian sister-in-law gave me this great fish recipe and believe me, Norwegians know how to cook sea food.

Not only is this an easy method to bake fish, but preparing it with savory rosemary and vegetables creates great flavors also.

It is a known fact that seafood is healthy and that this fish especially, is very rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acid, which lowers our cholesterol.

Baking in aluminum foil makes the clean-up easy, so this recipe has numerous benefits.

Serves 4
Preheat oven 350° F.

Ingredients:
1 pound fish fillet skin on
1 small onion, thinly sliced
Fresh rosemary, chopped.
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
Ground sea salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
Aluminum foil

Preparation:
Brush olive oil on a large
piece of aluminum foil
Place rinsed and dried fillet,
skin-side down on foil.
Sprinkle lemon zest, salt,
Pepper and rosemary

Vegetables:
Broccoli florets
Sliced red peppers
Sliced yellow squash
Thinly sliced red skin potatoes

Place aluminum foil on a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray and place fillet onto foil.

Arrange broccoli florets, red peppers, squash and red skins over the fish and spritz with lemon juice. Sprinkle ground sea salt sparingly.

Close foil tightly around and place on a baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes in preheated oven.

Serving Suggestion:
Place serving platter on top of the foil-covered fish fillet. Turn platter over and remove foil. Remove skin from fillet. Garnish with tomatoes, parsley sprigs and lemon slices.

Hope you'll enjoy this healthy meal as much as we do. More great cooking ideas to come - so check in often.
