Who says eating Heart Healthy has to be boring!

Preheat oven to 400*F

Ingredients:

  • 4 – 4 oz. Sockeye Salmon
  • 1 zucchini (large)
  • 1 yellow squash (large)
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 sweet red onion (medium)
  • 1 cup of portabella mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 3 navel oranges (slice two of the oranges to yield 8 slices and half the other)
  • 2 limes
  • Seasoning (this is up to you) I use paprika, parsley, rosemary, basil, onion powder, garlic salt and fresh ground pepper. Total is about 2 TBS. The mix I use is roughly ¼ tsp of each with the pepper being on the heavier side.
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil (divided)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Olive Oil by squeezing the juice of 1 orange and the 2 limes.
  2. Wash and pat dry salmon and set aside.
  3. Clean vegetables and cut vegetables in your favorite way (size and shape does not matter!)
  4. Use half of the Olive oil mix for the salmon. Coat salmon well and season with half of the seasoning mix.
  5. Combine remaining Olive oil mix, seasoning mix and add to vegetables and mix well.
  6. Place 1 salmon steak on foil sheet along with 1 cup of the vegetable mix and top with 2 orange slices and wrap tightly and securely in the foil.
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until salmon is cooked and vegetables are at desired texture.
