Salmon, the easy way

When selecting salmon try to select wild salmon, not farm raised salmon. Sure wild salmon is expensive, however it is healthier. Wild salmon has a rich dark color as it is lean with minimal fat. Due to wild salmon not penned in but have the vast ocean waters to swim and burn off any fat.

While farm raised salmon is a sickly pale color due to plenty of fat. The farm raised salmon have a limited space to swim, thus making it difficult to shed off the fat.

For this video farm raised salmon was purchased at Kroger supermarket at about $7.50 a pound. Also purchase wild salmon at Whole Foods Market at about $22.00 a pound.

Prepare the salmon rubbing olive oil and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. Place on cooking sheet and bake on 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. If the cooking sheet you use is aluminum, may want to line it with parchment paper. This would prevent the salmon from baking while sitting on top of aluminum.

Also remember maintaining a diet is all about portion size. Keep the portions small, supplement meals with vegetables. Eat fruit between meals. Enjoy healthy food and you will enjoy life
