I love Salmon, especially in the summer. This fish is very light, but a perfect selection for any dinner. It also has omega 3 fatty acids which are healthy. I have been eating salmon for numerous years of my life, and I knew there were omega fatty acids in it, but I never knew what an omega fatty acid was. So of course I decided to research it..
To my amazement, I found a whole list of what Omega 3 can do for you…
Now if you don’t think this is a good enough reason to eat salmon, maybe this recipe will help..
My mom and I love to cook, and salmon has always been one of my favorite things to cool. Last summer, when I was down visiting my aunt, I even made this dish for her, which she really seemed to enjoy.
For the salmon, simmer extra virgin olive oil on a pan on the stove. When the pan heats up, add the salmon with the skin side facing down. You will cook the salmon for the majority of the time with the skin side down. On the side exposed, add spices. My favorite mixture to use is with paprika, Cajun seasoning, lemon, and hot sauce. Simmer the fish on the pan for ten to fifteen minutes depending on the size of the fish. When the salmon is starting to become very light pink (aka. it is almost cooked) flip it over and peel off the skin. The seasoned side will now be facing down on the pan. Put seasoning on the other side as well. After a couple minutes, you can take the fish off the pan and serve. I love this recipe and I hope you can enjoy it too!
