A Variety Of Salmon

Salmon is one of my absolute favorite things to eat and I can literally eat it multiple ways in the same week. When looking for options, here are a few of my go-tos.

Salad: searing salmon with some fresh herbs and fresh lemon juice is a great way to pack in the flavor and keep it simple. In addition to a variety of greens, I like to things like avocado, walnuts and chopped apples to round out the nutrition. 

Basil Pesto: Pesto makes everything wonderful and is especially tasty with Salmon. With a few simple ingredients: basil, garlic, pine nuts and olive oil, this is a quick sauce to make that holds up well throughout the week. I find that I like it with and without Parmesan, especially when watching the added fats in a dish. You can always experiment with other nuts you have on hand if you’re not a fan of pine nuts.

Simply Seasoned with a whole grain: A little pressed garlic and fresh squeezed lemon juice is a simple accompaniment to salmon. I also love to use fresh thyme and lemon and served over warm quinoa or a bulgur pilaf.

What’s your favorite way to prepare salmon? Let me know your thoughts on my favorites.
