Lemon Ginger Salmon
Written by: Tia Kamaris
Eating clean plays as much as important role in your health as working out. Getting in that WOD is important, but if you’re not providing your body with the right fuel you might as well skip that workout! I have been struggling to get enough protein in my diet, especially something besides chicken. I am no chef, so here’s a really simple recipe for salmon that’s tasty and light, and can be tweaked to your personal taste.
1 medium salmon filet
1 fresh lemon
1/2 red onion
1 inch piece of fresh ginger (optional)
salt/pepper to taste
Place one medium salmon filet on a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. Cover with thin slices of 1/2 the lemon and slivers of ginger. Add sliced onion and salt and pepper. Squeeze the juice of the other half of the lemon over everything. Make a pouch out of the aluminum foil. Broil for 20 min and then open pouch and broil for an additional 5-10 minutes to allow lemons and onions to brown.
I personally like ginger but it’s not everyone’s favorite. Feel free to add whatever spices and flavors you like. I’m no chef, but I have learned to experiment! Enjoy!!
