Garlic and Herb Baked Salmon

Food - Meals - Garlic and Herb Baked SalmonWild caught salmon is well known for being a great source of easily digestible proteins and fatty acids like Omega-3 in the form of triglyceride, as well as vitamins like vitamin-D, vitamin-A, and some members of the vitamin-B family. Bonus: It also contains minerals like selenium, zinc, phosphorus, calcium, and iron. With all of those health benefits, it’s a no brainer on what to make for dinner this week.

  • 1 medium lemon, zested
