Health Benefits Of Salmon

Salmon is full of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are one of the “good” types of fat. The body needs it to function and doesn’t make them on it’s own.

Among its many benefits, Omega-3  promotes healthy joints and healthy skin and also reduces the risk of heart disease. Salmon can also fulfill a large part of your daily protein requirement and is also high in vitamins B-12, B-6 and Vitamin D.

Broiled Salmon Ingredients

For this salmon recipe, I use olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper on both the salmon and the zucchini.

Though the recipe mentions using a toaster oven, a regular oven can be used with no changes.

Step 1

Begin by lining the toaster oven tray with aluminum foil, this makes cleanup easy.

For the zucchini, rinse the skin and pat it dry.

Using a sharp knife, cut off the ends of the zucchini. Then cut the zucchini in half to create a flat surface. Slice the zucchini into 1/2-inch strips, then chop each strip into dices.

Step 2

Pour the olive oil on top of the salmon and add salt and pepper.

Rub the oil, salt and pepper into the salmon.

Step 3

Turn the salmon fillet over so that the bottom side gets a little oil on it as well.

Step 4

To season the diced zucchini, toss the zucchini into a bowl, add the salt, pepper and olive oil and toss to coat the vegetables evenly with the oil.

Pour the diced zucchini onto the tray next to the salmon.

After the salmon has cooked, squeeze lemon juice over the top of the salmon and the zucchini.

This salmon is so full of flavor and I know you’re going to love it. 

If you’re not a fan of zucchini, you could easily substitute yellow squash, broccoli or cauliflower florets and prepare them the same way as the zucchini.

If you don’t have a toaster oven, I can recommend this Hamilton Beach toaster oven that I have in my kitchen and use all the time.

    Hi Joanie,

    Just found your blog and I love it! I’m an English language teacher – just finished my first year teaching in Korea and I’m realizing that I want a simpler, location-independent lifestyle. I expect to spend between 3 months and 2 years in each place, doing a combination of classroom teaching, one to one teaching and online teaching. That means lightening-up in a couple of different ways! One: I need to eat healthier. Two: I need to cook my own food some of the time, but I need to do that with minimal kitchen equipment. (I plan to carry a basic “kitchen kit” – vegetable peeler, cheese shredder/zester, a set of cutlery, a pepper grinder, bottle opener/corkscrew, measuring cups and spoons, a good large mug, and one or two good knifes) and pick up a few basic larger tools (pasta pot and toaster oven) at each place I settle. But if I’m going to carry a “kitchen kit” (however minimalist) and still travel light, that doesn’t really leave room for cookbooks! So I did a search for good recipes for one online and found your blog, and I think it’s a keeper!

    btw if you have suggestions for folks like me who want to cook healthy while traveling, I would love that and I think lots of other people (including people your son’s age) would too!!

    Thanks so much for your great work!!


    1. Hi Allison,
      Thank you so much for your email. How exciting it must be to live and teach in another country! I love to travel and have said many times that I would love the opportunity to live overseas.

      I love your approach to cooking and and meal planning and I’m so glad you found our site. I hope you are able to find many new recipes here that will be easy to make with easily accessible ingredients.
