Some people shy away from cooking fish at home because they think it too complicated. But eating fish at restaurants often means getting more salt and fat added than you want or need. So check my recipe page for a variety of fish recipes I think you can handle. Or start with this simple yet tasty way to make salmon at home.
Salmon is a great fatty fish, with what’s being called good fat these days, so enjoy it in place of steak or other meats you once ate but are giving up now because of “bad” fat concerns.
This recipe from Cooking Light is almost healthy enough for me. But I’d eliminate the Worcestershire sauce and instead use a tablespoon of Mrs. Dash’s salt-free teriyaki sauce to get out the salt. I also wouldn’t add any salt, you don;t really need it for such a tasty fish dish.
The ingredients you’ll need (with my modification noted):
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 Tbsp. fresh juice (from 1 lemon)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce [use salt-free Mrs. Dash teriyaki sauce instead to cut salt)
4 (6-oz.) center-cut salmon fillets (about 1 in. thick)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt [forget it!!!]
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Marinate the salmon in the oil/lemon/sauce mixture, then broil it for 8-10 minutes and you’re done!
More details are on the Cooking Light recipe page along with a video you can follow. Enjoy!
