Baked Salmon with herbs

  
After a full week of eating donuts for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a much needed detox was in order to start the week. Salmon is always my first idea for a healthy and filling meal. I decided this time to blend a mix of spices with olive oil and garlic, let them infuse for a couple of minutes and coat the fish. What is a better way to start the week?

4 pieces of salmon 

2 tbsp of olive oil

salt

Pepper 

4 cloves of garlic grated

2 tbsp of lemon zest 

1/3 cup of chopped cilantro 

1 tbsp of dill

1 tbsp of thyme

1 tbsp of oregano

Heat the oven to 400. Coat a large baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fish. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with all the remaining herbs and the lemon zest. Let it rest for a couple of minutes and coat the fish. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. 

Chicken with lemon and Rosemary

  
I make chicken for dinner many times a week and always need to come up with healthy and easy recipes specially in the summer. I had fresh rosemary in the fridge and decided that it needed to be used for my recipe. This chicken dish is lemony, moist, delicious and full of flavor. This is the perfect dinner dish if you are in a hurry and want to make an impressive but healthy dinner.

  • Zest from one lemon
