Easy Baked Salmon with Green Beans

Print

I love when cooking is easy and takes no time. And leaves nearly no dishes! Oven baked salmon has become my go-to meal when I’m too lazy for kitchen creativity. Where others throw a frozen pizza in the oven, I throw some fish filets in there. I don’t need tons of sides, either – some green beans with salt and olive oil is enough. If you eat butter, that’s even better with the fish. This is the new fast food, people!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This meal is very easy to digest and fits into almost all gut healthy diets. Salmon has anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids as well as good protein. It is good to make sure it is either wild salmon or responsibly farmed salmon, as salmon can be contaminated with harmful substances in traditional farming practices.
