It’s easy and quick to bake Salmon with lemon and pepper, and serve any type of vegetable as a side. This is a power meal with plenty of protein, Omega 3’s, and vitamins while tasting delicious. Follow this easy recipe.
1 fresh cut of 4 to 6 oz. Salmon per person
1 or 2 whole lemons
Pepper to taste (fresh ground is nice)
Dill (Fresh or dried)
Light olive oil
Prep: Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil. Place the salmon skin side down on the baking sheet. Squeeze 1/4 of a lemon on each piece of Salmon. Sprinkle each piece with onion powder, dill and pepper to taste. Bake or broil for 15 minutes on the middle rack. (Cooking time may vary depending on oven.)
Asparagus lightly sauteed in a pan with garlic and onion powder and pepper goes really well with salmon. Alternately a nice salad with a variety of vegetables is a good side. This is a very low carb nutritious and filling meal that’s fast and easy to make.
Adding a carb choice
For a slightly larger meal with a few more carbs but not overindulgent, add a 1/4 cup side of quinoa, brown rice or roasted parsnips or beets.
