Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, great to support skin, heart and brain health, lower inflammation, salmon is one of the most loved fish in UK, along with cod. All fish can be included in the diet (unless you exclude animal products due to ethical and/or environmental reasons), but oily fish like salmon, sardines, anchovies, mackerel and herrings are particularly important, due to their high omega 3 content.
I love this recipe because is quick and delicious, easy to prepare and can be customised with alternative vegetables (see the notes section at the bottom).
Time: 25 minutes
-1.3kg salmon filet

- Rub the flesh of the salmon with olive oil. In a small bowl, mix the garlic and honey, and spread over the salmon. Season with salt and pepper.
- Lay the salmon onto the baking tray, skin side down. Chop the pistachios and press them onto salmon. Finally place the green beans around the sides.
- Place the baking sheet into the hot oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until the salmon flakes easily and is cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges.
