Salmon is my favorite fish to eat! There are so many benefits to eating it. It is packed with vitamins A, B and D as well as calcium. It also has those wonderful omega 3 fatty acids that help your brain work better and improve memory (see this article about the benefits of eating salmon).
I have been on a salmon "kick" for the last several weeks. I don't know why but maybe my body is craving those omega fatty acids. I have enjoyed it. Below is my quick and simple recipe for baked salmon. I hope you enjoy it!
My salmon at home
~ Purchase a salmon of your choice and size
~ Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
~ Place salmon on parchment paper or greased baking pan
~ Sprinkle some olive oil on it (use as much as you wish)
~ Sprinkle salt, pepper, Weber Grill Kickin Chicken (I love this stuff), and then some basil.
~ I then place it in the oven for about 30 minutes and voila. Dinner is served!
