Baked Lemon Herb Salmon Recipe

Salmon 2

Rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs) like omega-3 and omega-6, salmon is a healthy skin superstar. EFAs  reduce inflammation in the body. According to Nicholas Perricone, a dermatologist and author of The Perricone Prescription “Inflammation triggers the cells to clog the pore, causing acne,” and “It also leads to wrinkles down the line.” The carotenoid anti-oxidants of astaxanthin found in salmon can greatly reduce the effects of free radical damage which causes aging.

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 (tablespoon) dried thyme

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
