So I have in addition to babbling about other things decided to post recipes for things that I have made, that can help keep up clean eating. Not necessarily each day or when I eat it but just some regular fairly good for you food, some may be my own recipes some may be altered some may be from books or sites I find useful either way I will let you know.
This will also help me keep track of when I throw together something great and then a month later try and remember what I put in it.:P
Today's recipe will be the first which was me playing around at lunch at work, with what ingredients were pretty much within an arms grasp, in other words one of my own.
Baked Salmon With Lemon and Capers
1-4 oz piece Salmon Fillet (I use skin on you don't have to)
1 tbs Capers well rinsed and chopped
1 ring thinly sliced spanish white onion cut in half
1 tsp Dried garlic Scapes or 1 clove Garlic minced
Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste
1 tsp red wine vinegar
This one is pretty straight forward, place salmon in a tupperware season with pepper, place capers onion and garlic on the top presentation side of the fish. Cut Your Lemon in half slice off to "rings" set aside rings. Squeeze remaining lemon over salmon, as well as red wine vinegar. Top with 2 Slices on Lemon (these should completely cover the salmon.) Wrap tightly and refrigerate 30 min (this can be skipped if you set for time I find it gives the flavors time to marry up though) Pre-Heat oven to 400 F place the salmon skin side down on a foil lined baking sheet and bake 8-10 min for med-rare. Longer if you like you Salmon cooked more.
I had this with 3/4 cup brown Rice , and 1/2 a cup of shelled Edamame (with only pepper not salt) for lunch today. Totals totals for the entire meal 486 Calories, 48 Carbs, 14g of Fat(though mostly Omega 3's) and 41 Grams of protein, wasn't hungry again till dinner just now next time I will probably do a 3 oz piece of Salmon.
