Salmon is a favorite amongst health-conscious individuals. Not only is salmon a great source of protein, but it is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, B Vitamins, and selenium. May 2020 Featured Chef Mandy Pagano shares her Simple Salmon recipe for us to try. This quick and easy recipe is great for even beginner cooks.
“I am not a big fan-o-fish, but my son is. He’s said on multiple occasions that he likes seafood much better than land food, and so I do what I can to accommodate his fishy tastes while making it edible for myself. Luckily, the rest of my family loves all manner of seafood, too, so we had no leftovers of this salmon.
I make this on weeknights because it’s quick and easy, so feel free to add it to your regular rotation. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little with different herbs and spices to make this your own!”
