Is Salmon Good for You?

Salmon is a nutritional powerhouse. Loaded with protein, heart-healthy omega-3s, antioxidants, vitamin B12, selenium and potassium, salmon has been linked with a ton of health benefits. All this nutrition has been shown to decrease inflammation, reduce blood pressure, lower cancer risk and keep the nervous system healthy.

Are Potatoes Healthy?

Potatoes often get a bad rap due to their carb content, but they have many nutritional attributes, especially when eaten with the skin on. Potatoes provide vitamin C, potassium and fiber, and contain a special type of carbohydrate called resistant starch, which feeds your beneficial gut bacteria. Due to their carbohydrate content, potatoes may cause a spike in blood sugar, but eating them with protein, such as salmon, can help reduce the spike.

Ingredients (4 servings)

• 1 pound fingerling potatoes, halved lengthwise
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
• ½ teaspoon sea salt
• ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 4 5 to 6-ounce fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillets
• 2 medium red, yellow and/or orange sweet peppers, cut into rings
• 2 cups cherry tomatoes
• 1 ½ cups chopped fresh parsley (1 bunch)
• ¼ cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
• ¼ cup finely snipped fresh oregano or 1 Tbsp. dried oregano, crushed
• 1 lemon


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. of the oil and sprinkle with garlic and 1/8 tsp. of the salt and black pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to a 15×10-inch baking pan; cover with foil. Roast 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, thaw salmon, if frozen. Combine, in the same bowl, sweet peppers, tomatoes, parsley, olives, oregano and 1/8 tsp. of the salt and black pepper. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil; toss to coat.

3. Rinse salmon; pat dry. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and black pepper. Spoon sweet pepper mixture over potatoes and top with salmon. Roast, uncovered, 10 minutes more or just until salmon flakes.

4. Remove zest from lemon. Squeeze juice from lemon over salmon and vegetables. Sprinkle with zest.
