Foodie – a person who seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger.
That’s what I guess I am. So when I catch myself making, eating and craving again the same dish for few days or even weeks – that is pretty special! I had this with pumpkin icecream then with stir-fry and lately it was this delicious salmon with veggies. This Salmon Recipe is so simple even a kid can make it. I truly consider it one of the most delicious salmon recipes ever.
Salmon is a diet source of essential nutrients – it has 240% (of daily recommended value) of Vitamin B12, absolutely must -have if you do not eat meat. 127% of Vitamin D, Selenium, Vitamin B6 and B3 and much more, as well as it is basically made of good fats and protein – and those are the main ingredients for your lean body. Salmon is so delicious it shocks me when I hear someone dislikes this fish. But I have noticed one common feature between all the salmon ‘haters’ – usually, they just don’t know how to cook it right or someone overcooked it for them. And nothing is more sad, plain and tough than overcooked salmon.
So here is a little secret, even if you will not like my favourite salmon recipe, whenever you bake salmon, remember that the oven should be hot when you place it there and keep it there for precisely 14-15 minutes. If it is usual salmon fillet like on my pictures – 14 minutes precisely! Cooked salmon must fall apart in flakes under the pressure of your fork. It must be almost under-done, juicy and pink! Then it is a salmon you just cannot hate.
So if you love your salmon or you decided to give it another try, enjoy this delicious salmon recipe.
You can use more vegetables or less, it is up to you, the only real plan to follow here is the sauce.
(2 cups) broccoli florets
(2 cups) carrots, sliced
some olive oil
2 boneless salmon fillets
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey ( some people also add brown sugar but I think it is completely unnecessary and will make this dish really less healthy!)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds or any seeds you like, I use line seeds, also full of Omega-3
- Pre-heat oven to 200C
- Place veggies in a baking dish, mix in the olive oil
- Put salmon on top
- Mix the sauce : honey and soy sauce and top your salmon and veggies with it, mix well and make sure salmon is covered with the sauce
- Add seeds on top
- Bake for 14 minutes (maximum!)
- Serve and Enjoy!
