Baked Lemon Garlic Salmon

Salmon is a great way to get in omega-3 fatty acids, or healthy fats, into your diet! We recommend consuming salmon 2 times per week. Serve this with a complex carb like quinoa plus your veggie of choice!

(Serves 6)

  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • ½ lemon, sliced into rounds
