Chili Lime Salmon

I consider Salmon a super food.

Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium. It is a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus, and vitamin B6. It is also a good source of choline, pantothenic acid, biotin, and potassium.

When it comes to salmon, quality matters.  Choosing wild caught salmon will reduce the amount of mercury present in this fish.  It will also contain lower the amount of omega-6 fats which are found in farm raised fish.

Try adding fatty fish and seafood to your diet at least once a week.  It’s a great way to boost omega-3 fats which are anti-inflammatory, boost heart health, support joints, and boost brain power.

Chili lime salmon is easy to make.  I decided to have mine on top of a salad but this fish could stand alone with a couple of sides.

Here’s how to make Chili Lime Salmon:

Ingredients: 

1 pound salmon fillets
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lime
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp chili powder

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the salmon on the parchment paper and pat dry.  Rub each fillet with olive oil and squeeze the juice from one-half lime onto each fillet.  Sprinkle the salmon with sea salt and chili powder.  Cook the salmon for 12-15 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork.
