If, like me, you’re a little obsessed with the flavor and health benefits of salmon you will want to bookmark this recipe.
Why is salmon such a great catch?
It’s a tasty source of protein that’s also rich in omega-3s, fatty acids that are good for your gut and are associated with reducing risk factors linked to heart disease, like high triglycerides, high blood pressure, and blood clotting. Omega-3s are also anti-inflammatory, great for your skin and hair, and may even help balance horomones!
This recipe serves 6, but can easily be cut in half.
14 large cloves garlic, divided
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
¾ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
6 cups Brussels sprouts, trimmed and sliced
¾ cup white wine
2 pounds wild-caught salmon fillet, skinned, cut into 6 portions
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Mince 2 garlic cloves and combine in a small bowl with oil, 1 tablespoon oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Halve the remaining garlic and toss with Brussels sprouts and 3 tablespoons of the seasoned oil in a large roasting pan. Roast, stirring once, for 15 minutes.
Add wine to the remaining oil mixture. Remove the pan from oven, stir the vegetables and place salmon on top. Drizzle with the wine mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oregano and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.
