Alaskan Salmon

Alaskan Salmon
This is a recipe I always made but once I started to eat clean it was not hard to make a few changes to make it clean.

3 salmon filets
1 table spoon of olive oil
2 table spoons of agave
1/2 cup of oatmeal (place in food processer for 30 seconds)
1/2 cup of walnuts (any nuts on hand)
pinch of parsley, pepper, crushed red peppers, garlic salt, and oregano

Alaskan Salmon

Heat oven to 400 degrees
Place olive oil in bottom of baking dish, add salmon filets, then top with remaining ingredients.
I have replaced bread crumps with oatmeal.  A great time saver is to place 3 cups of oatmeal in food processer and blend.  That way you always have them on hand.  Bake for 30 minutes. 

Salmon is a highly nutritious food. It is high in protein and contains vitamin D, B12, niacin, calcium and selenium and is also an excellent source of B6 and magnesium. All of these are excellent for the human body. There also seems to be a lot of research  showing that in eating this fish helps to decrease chances of inflammation which can lead to problems such as heart disease or diabetes. This is mainly due to the fish containing Omega-3. The Omega-3 within the fish also helps prevent blood clots and have showed signs to help slow cognitive problems such as Alzheimer's disease. People who eat sufficient levels of the fish also seem to be less depressed.
