Healthy Stuff: Salmon
We are so lucky in Seattle, to have a great selection of fresh fish all year round. Fish is a good source of protein, without the high saturated fat that are in many meats. Salmon is high in two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids which help to increase overall health and energy. I like to take 1/2 pound salmon filets, make sure they are dry, season with salt and pepper and sear in a hot pan with an combination of olive and canola oil. I place salmon in the hot oven-proof pan, skin side down, don't touch it, wait 2 minutes and flip. Wait another 2 minutes, then put the pan in a 350 degree oven for another 5 minutes to finish. Perfect!
