No fuss Baked Salmon

By admin | In Nutrition, Uncategorized | on August 7, 2012

You’ve probably heard about the taking fish oil supplements, noticed the pastured eggs at the grocery store with the “DHA/EPA”, eating more fish and grassfed meat, etc. etc. Why is that important?

– Omega 3 and Omega 6 are “essential” fatty acids because they’re necessary but are not produced by the body.
– Although they are both essential, our standard western diet is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids (usually found in vegetable oils – corn, soy, peanut, safflower and other oils) and deficient in the Omega 3 fatty acids (grassfed animal products, wild caught fish, algae, flax, etc.)
– This skewed ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 in the typical modern American diet (30:1) is far from what is supposed to be normal and good for us (1:1, 2:1, 4:1).
– The ratios are important because omega 3 fatty acids are non-inflammatory and omega 6 are pro-inflammatory. They keep each other in check.
– Trying to achieve that balanced ratio by increasing our consumption of omega 3 fatty acids leads to — lower inflammation — higher bone density and lower risk for diabetes, heart disease and many other inflammation related disorders.
– Fish oil is a great way to help restore this ratio. Whole foods like grassfed animal fats and wild caught fish are ideal.

Here’s a 5-ingredient fish recipe that’ll take you less than 20 minutes to cook!

Ingredients:

  • 2lb salmon (or steelhead)
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1 bunch finely chopped green onions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 415 F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil and grease lightly with some olive oil.
  3. Place salmon on the baking sheet, skin side down.
  4. Season with salt, chili powder and spread the mustard evenly over the fish.
  5. Place in the over for 12-15 minutes (It’s ready when it is no longer translucent and flakes easily).
  6. Garnish with green onions and serve!
