Here's the recipe for healthy salmon with lemon, a prized and delicate dish that combines the strong taste of lemon with salmon.
INGREDIENTS (for two persons):
- 2 slices of fresh salmon
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons flour
- Salt and Pepper To Taste.
- 2 tablespoons of still white wine
Begin by removing the peel from lemon and separately in a saucer.
Extract the juice from the lemon pulp: to do this, squeeze the lemon and collect the juice in a bowl.
Remember to filter the remaining liquid through a strainer to prevent pieces of the pulp from ending up in the juice.
To prepare the salmon steaks; wash and remove the skin. Ensure that it is boneless, otherwise remove any bones still present.
Get a non-stick pan. Put it on the stove to preheat after having sprinkled with a teaspoon of olive oil. At this point, take a plate and turn in flour. Flour one salmon at a time and make sure everything is covered evenly in flour.
Place the floured fillets in the pan and cook until golden on both sides. When they are almost golden, pour the lemon juice and dry white wine. Add salt and pepper and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes. When all the white wine has evaporated, remove the pot from the heat.
Wash and chop some parsley.
Place the slices on a serving dish and garnish with the lemon juice, parsley and lemon zest.
The salmon is a food rich in Omega 3: this polyunsaturated acid is well known for the beneficial effects it has on the health of the body! The regular intake of Omega 3 has a direct impact on blood circulation, premature aging, the reduction of bad cholesterol and prevention of heart disease, stroke or heart attacks. Eating salmon is a valuable aid in the prevention of degenerative brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's, protects nerve and brain cells and increases memory and concentration skills. Salmon is also a tool useful for slimming: Omega 3 effectively burns fat by encouraging the body to metabolize fats, helping us to keep our body healthy and at the same time fit!
