Salmon is a healthy and delicious dinner option. It is high in omega-3 fatty acids and is good for your heart. Salmon is a good choice for people who do not normally like seafood. It has a meatier texture and taste than other fish. Grilling salmon is probably the most popular cooking method. However, it can also be baked at a low temperature.
Bake salmon at 176 degrees C. Like most fish, it is easy to overcook. To avoid this, bake the salmon at a low temperature for 25 minutes.
The taste of salmon can be complimented by a number of simple ingredients. Try baking your salmon with herbs, soy sauce, salsa, garlic, salt and pepper, honey and mustard, or lemon juice, chives and a bit of white wine.
If you are cooking salmon with the skin on, do not spray cooking oil on the baking sheet. This will cause the skin to stick to the bottom of the pan and it will peel off easily when you remove the salmon. Let the pan soak for about 15 minutes in hot water and the skin will come off with little effort.
Other Heart-Healthy Choices
Bass, herring, trout, tuna and white fish are other types of fish that are healthy and good for your heart.
Ideally, your goal should be to eat fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids two times per week. This basically means eating a 85.1gr serving, twice a week.
