Salmon Recipe

salmon-recipe I had never cooked salmon and when my brother brought it home last night, I was up for the task. It was pretty simple really.

My brother and I were just talking about how we don’t eat enough fish and how to incorporate it in our meals.

Let’s get to it! 🙂

**Note: This recipe is for one serving**

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. fresh salmon
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 cup vegetables

Directions:

Before adding the oil, preheat your pan at medium temp. Cut large lemon in half, squeeze one half of lemon juice on the salmon. Mix seasonings and sprinkle across each side. Add olive oil to hot pan, helps with sticking, Add your veggies and salmon to the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. If you like your fish more well done, cook for about five minutes on each side.

Add fish and veggies to your plate and squeeze the other lemon half to your meal and enjoy! 😉
