baked salmon

i have made this dish for as long as i have been cooking. growing up we ate this on a regular basis and i’ve continued to do so into adulthood. i like to buy the frozen wild-caught fish from trader joe’s mostly. i can then just pull it out of the freezer in the morning to thaw. serve it alongside some hot rice, couscous with vegetables or a bowl of miso soup and voila! you’ve got yourself a deliciously healthy dinner!

ingredients: {serves 2}
• 8 oz. package frozen wild-caught salmon {thawed}
• olive oil
• lemon slices
• brown rice {i used white sticky rice here}
• assorted vegetables of your choice {yellow peppers, broccoli & onions}
• handful of cherry tomatoes halved
• low-sodium soy or tamari sauce
• good quality maple syrup
• sea salt and cracked black pepper
• herbs de provence {optional}
• black sesame seeds ~ gomashio {optional}
• baguette {optional}

to do:
rinse the fish in cold water, pat dry, season with salt, pepper and seasonings and drizzle a little olive oil a top. place skin-side down into a baking tin lined with tin foil. place citrus slices on the fish and toss the cherry tomatoes into the pan. place into a pre-heated oven of 400 degrees and bake for around 8 minutes or so. flip the fish over and broil for a few minutes so that the skin is slightly blackened and crispy. serve the fish immediately with your sauteed vegetables and hot rice. add a light drizzling of soy sauce and maple syrup to mainly the fish and rice. sprinkle with black sesame seeds for a pretty finish. enjoy!
