Herb, Tomato, and Nut-Crusted Baked Salmon

Salmon. I absolutely love this fish that is full of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are said to help with everything from treating arthritis and depression to maintaining neurological and heart health.

When baked salmon is cooked right, it is so delicious — I could have it every day. When baked, it keeps its moisture in and also creates this crunchy top that makes it even more delicious.

Herb, Tomato, and Nut-Crusted Baked Salmon

This recipe is very adaptable — you can have it as a main course with a side of salad or roasted vegetables or you could break the salmon into pieces and mix it in with quinoa for an easy, high-protein meal.
