Simple Salmon Recipe

As you probably can tell, I tend to eat salmon at least once a week. Not only does eating salmon offer so many health benefits, but there is a variety of different ways you can enjoy it. Lately, each time I plan on cooking salmon I search for a new way to enjoy it.

A little over two weeks ago my mom started the 17 day diet (cycles of 17 days.) I am not a fan of every concept of this diet, nor do I think I could one allot myself 2 pieces of fruit a day (part one of cycle), there is one concept I like. Much of the diet focuses on taking out the processed foods and going “back to the basics.”

The 17 day diet book contains a few recipes. Last week my mom made one of the salmon recipes. She told me it was quick, easy to prepare, and really yummy. Since I was salmon this past week, I decided to give it a try.The meal took me a matter or 30 minutes to prepare! It was so simple.

Note: This recipe is for two fillets of salmon – half the recipe if only making one.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 lemons
1 tsp of oregano (I used Victoria Taylor’s Herbs de Provence)
2 cloves garlic, chopped.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an oven safe cooking dish (make sure it has rims) with cooking spray or line with aluminum foil. Place salmon in dish. Drizzle olive oil over the salmon. Squeeze the lemon. Sprinkle the oregano, and chop and place garlic on top of fish. Cook for 25 minutes.
