Salmon Recipe – Healthy and Simple

Simple Roasted Salmon

This roasted salmon recipe is flavorful, colorful and healthy! I use some oils and vinegars from Alex Ferrari’s Gourmet Emporium called Olimila in Studio City!

I started with these BEAUTIFUL ingredients; salmon, parsley, basil, shallots, mushrooms, a roma tomato, spinach and the fresh basil olive oil and guilty garlic balsamic vinegar.

Salmon Ingredients

First I minced up my shallots, garlic, basil and tomato and popped ’em into a bowl. A little basil chiffonade.

Salmon Basil

Minced shallots.

Salmon Shallot

Everything in a bowl ready to roll.
Salmon Marinade

I also decided to put my spinach into a colander in the sink and rinse em and leave them to dry out. If you want to cut off more of the stem than I did please do, I don’t mind the toughness but some people hate it! All up to your preference.

Salmon Spinach Wash

Next I place two tablespoons of the oil and vinegar into the bowl, and a couple squeezes of lemon.

Salmon Oil and Vin

Then I mixed the lot of it up, which just combines the flavors and I stuck it in the fridge to cool a bit.

Salmon Marinade 2

Next I thinly sliced my mushrooms and preheat my oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.

Salmon Mushroomss

Then I placed my dry spinach and the mushrooms into a baking dish to prep for the oven! At this point you should dry your fish and season with salt and pepper.

Salmon Veggies

Now place your salmon on top and pour your marinade over it.

Salmon Prepped

Now you’re going to place your dish into the preheated oven and roast for about 10-12 minutes until almost cooked in the center. Check this by inserting the tip of a sharp knife and peeking in.

There should only be a small line of uncooked fish right in the center. After this step, wrap tightly with aluminum foil and let it rest for 1o minutes! Then take it out and voila!
