Aside from tasting so good, Salmon is also known to be rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin D, and protein. This makes this Baked Salmon Recipe even more interesting.The good thing about this recipe is its characteristic of being both a main dish and a salad. The fish can be eaten with rice or in between two buns. It can also be consumed with the salad — which compliments the fish, by the way.Baked Salmon is a simple recipe fit for beginners. All you need to do is rub the spices, wrap in a foil, and bake. The salad is also easy to prepare. This only requires you to combine the ingredients and toss. This recipe is quick, easy, and healthy.
I know that you are excited to try this recipe, but let me give you some pointers before starting. In the recipe list, there is an ingredient called spring mix. This is basically pre packaged vegetables consisting of baby lettuce, radicchio, endives, and some greens. If this is not available in your area, you can use romaine lettuce, spinach, and any leafy vegetable fit for a salad.
I find Feta cheese best for this recipe, but feel free to use any type that you desire. I used garlic Feta for this. You can get this type of cheese on the same aisle where ordinary Feta cheeses are located.
One last thing, make sure not to overcook the salmon. There should be enough juice left in the fish.
This recipe is good for 1 to 2 persons.
