Salmon is a healthy protein that you should include in your diet.
This Magic Salmon Seasoning is one of my long time favorite ways of preparing salmon. It is so good the seasoning becomes a flavorful and delicious crust!
Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Seasoning is great on everything, not just salmon! I use this on vegetables, salad, and even eggs! This is a mandatory seasoning to add to your cabinet. You will end up using it on everything. You can order it on Amazon here, or check your local supermarket ($6.99)! If you eat salmon, you need to get this! This seasoning will also last for a long time with many uses.
Salmon has earned its research reputation as a health-supportive food based largely on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content. Omega 3’s have been linked to healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing. When you go to the store to pick out your salmon it can be hard to decide which one to choose. If you can find wild caught Salmon at your local fish store that is always a good choice.
You will also more commonly see farm raised salmon which makes up almost 80% of salmon we see today. There is a controversy that the farm raised salmon is high in pesticides and may pose as a safety concern. Many restaurants are still serving farm raised salmon. The choice is up to you. When I went to the store there were 3 options: wild caught (18.99 a pound), organic farm raised (13.99 a pound), and farm raised (7.99 a pound). I went with the organic farm raised (mainly because I’m on a budget)!
What you need – Baked Salmon:

What to do

This is a great recipe to make on a weeknight because it is easy to prepare and also a great source of protein.
