A Night in with Citrusy Baked Salmon
Not sure what to make for dinner this weekend? TFT HK founder Steph Tan is here to help! See below for her recipe for baked salmon. Salmon is a delicious source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. The wild, Alaskan variety of this fatty fish is considered the most sustainable choice. The barley in this recipe is a very good source of fiber and selenium, and a good source of phosphorus, copper and manganese; and the spinach is rich in vitamin K (important for bone health!), and contains a variety of antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer flavonoid compounds:
Citrusy Baked Salmon
I never tire of eating salmon, and there are so many ways to prepare it. Baking it is one of the easiest and simplest ways to enjoy this fish, and the added lemon brightens and enhances the salmon's savory flavor.
Ingredients (serves 2):
1 Clove Garlic
Preheat oven at 65 degrees Celsius.
Portion salmon. Add salt, pepper, and olive oil. Cut a slice of lemon and place on top of salmon.
Wrap salmon in aluminum foil and place into oven. Bake for 30 minutes.
Bring salted water to a boil. Place barley in water and cook on medium heat for 30 minutes, until tender. Drain barley.
Peel and finely dice garlic. Wash spinach thoroughly. Over medium heat, stir fry garlic and spinach in pan. Add salt and pepper to taste.
