I love salmon and salmon is my fish of choice for my no meat days of the week; however there is a challenge to find new recipes to keep my taste buds peaked. This is a new recipe for me that I found on theprocessofhealing.com and it is so delicious. The sweetness of the Agave Nectar and the kosher salt give it the tasty crust that I love and roasting the salmon in the oven keeps the salmon moist.
You will need:
• salmon, skin removed (I used about 3 oz. fillets)
• 2 tsp.Agave Nectar
• 1 tsp coarse salt/Kosher salt,
• 1 tsp pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking pan (I line it with foil and spray it with cooking spray to make for easy clean-up).
Heat a non-stick skillet over Med-High heat (you are just searing the salmon) and spray with cooking spray or olive oil. Meanwhile, remove the skin of the salmon.
Spread Agave Nectar on the side facing up and season with salt and pepper.
Once the skillet is hot, place the salmon seasoned side down. Do not touch the salmon for about 2 minutes and this will create a crust.
Meanwhile, season the side of the salmon facing up the same way as the other side.
Flip the salmon over once that side has a nice brown crust and cook on the other side for another minute.
After 1 minute, move the salmon to the prepared baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes (for well-done).
Sit down with your healthy sides and prepare to have"your socks knocked off".Enjoy
