I am not a chef…

I see cooking as an art and a hobby at times, but I cannot say it is a passion. In fact, I am not a huge follower of recipes, as I just do not have the patience to follow the recipe exactly. Sites like Dr. Gourmet have made cooking easier, but still — I am the type of person that goes to the store, buys a bunch of stuff that seem to go together well, and mixes them in some sort of conglomeration that I call “dinner.” For once, my crazy cooking tactics actually produced a tasty fish. In fact, good enough to even write about it and share with you.

Sweet Basil Honey Salmon Healthy Recipe

I guess ingredients should be first:

  • Salmon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Basil
  • Honey
  • Peanut or Canola oil spray
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place a skillet coated with oil in the oven.
  2. While your oven is warming up, lightly sprinkle salt and pepper over your fish. Coat heavily with Basil.
  3. Cover the fish with honey, which helps to seal in the seasonings.
  4. When hot, take the skillet out of the oven. Place the seasoned fish skin down on the pan (it should sizzle).
  5. Place in the oven and cook until the top of the fish is beginning to turn a light brown.
  6. Remove and spread honey once more on the fish.
  7. Serve.

This is good stuff… Enjoy!

 

A Few Health Benefits of Salmon

Most of the health benefits of Salmon are due to the omega -3 fatty acids in the fish. Omega – 3 fats:

  • Improve the health of your heart
  • Improve mood and cognition
  • Protects your joints
  • Prevent chronic dry eye
  • Decrease your cancer risk

In addition, the protein content of salmon is exceptional and great for rebuilding muscle after your Exercise Menu workout!
