I always knew salmon was chock-full of healthy nutrients, but this was a lean protein I reserved for special dinners out ¡ª I was terrified of cooking it correctly. If you can relate, this is the easy recipe that built up my kitchen confidence when it came to cooking fish at home; now, it’s a staple in my weeknight routine. This one-sheet salmon supper is an ideal meal to enjoy after a tough strength-training session. From prep to plate, it comes together in 15 minutes and it offers 47 grams of lean protein. After tasting this recipe, you might be tempted to become a pescatarian! Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.
