Recipe: Roasted salmon

Recipe: Roasted salmon

Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend two servings of fish every week. Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep blood from forming clots and protect against irregular heartbeats that may cause a heart attack.


Directions

Heat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Rub salmon all over with 2 teaspoons oil. Roast skin side down on foil-lined baking sheet until fish is cooked through, about 12 minutes. After 10 minutes, check if fish flakes easily with fork. If it doesn''t, continue baking for 2 more minutes.

Using a metal spatula, lift salmon off skin and place salmon on serving plate. Discard skin. Sprinkle salmon with herbs and serve.


Ingredients
  • Two 5-ounce pieces salmon with skin
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves (optional)
