Some kinds of salmon live in freshwater. Others live in saltwater, and some live in both, depending on the season. The five main types of salmon are all of the Pacific variety. And they are a great source of omega-3s (which you'll find in most fish oil capsules). Salmon is rich in protein, vitamin B, calcium, potassium, and antioxidants. It's lower in calories and saturated fats than many red meat options and has zero carbs, fiber, or sugar. So, it's more than enough to include this product in your diet! We've also prepared a few valuable tips on how to make your easy salmon dish immaculate: 

  • Opt for fresh salmon filets that are pink, nice, and moist. Alternatively, buy frozen filets that are vacuum sealed with no freezer burn.
  • Use extra virgin. But any kind will work well. 
  • Kosher salt works excellent, or Himalayan pink salt.
  • Mince garlic on your own. It will give the dish more flavors.
  • Any well-known brand of Italian seasoning will be ok (or make your own). Don't skimp on this salmon recipe's aromatic flavors of Italian herbs.
  • A medium-sized lemon is delicate here, or choose a larger one if you love the zesty tartness of extra lemon.

Please follow the next steps:

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange an aluminum foil on a sheet pan. Set aside.

    Garnish with the cheese sauce. Serve hot.

Weight Loss Tips

  • Weight your grains or pasta before cooking: In this case, it's much easier to count how many calories you've got from your porridge.

  • Choose low-fat dairy to decrease the number of calories you consume.

  • Do not immerse food in non-boiling water. In boiling water, the food becomes exceptionally tender and fills the water with its taste and aroma.
