Easy Salmon with Lemon and Basil

Posted by

You’ve probably always heard of how great salmon is for you.  It’s true!  Salmon is a great source of the “good” cholesterol, omega-3 fatty acids.  It’s good for metabolism, cardiovascular health, and brain functions!  But my favorite thing about salmon is that it is also delicious – and really easy to make!  Here’s an easy recipe – Salmon with Lemon and Basil!

Ingredients

  • 1 salmon fillet ( ~6-8 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter/ghee
  • 1 lemon

Instructions

Cut the lemon in to wedges.  I like to cut the middle section in to thin slices for garnish purposes too.

Salmon with Lemon and Basil

In a bowl, mix together garlic powder, basil, and salt.

Garnish the salmon with lemon slices if you want!
