3 RECIPE: Baked Salmon with Lemon & Garlic.

A healthy low-carb lunch recipe...

This recipe is fast, easy and ridiculously healthy so if you're feeling peckish, pop this bad boy in the oven and treat yourself to a salmon filled parcel of deliciousness without the guilt.

What you need:
Two salmon fillets.
One lemon (sliced, plus juice)
Chilli (fresh, paste or dried).
Dill (fresh or dried).
A clove of garlice (or two if you are a garlic fan!)
Three-four spring onions (chopped).
Salt & Pepper to season.
Salad leaves.
Tin foil & baking tray.

What you need to do:
Preheat your oven to gas mark 7 (220 Celsius) and line a baking tray with tin foil. Next, lay four lemon slices onto the baking tray and then top with your two salmon fillets. 
Then, smear your chilli and garlic onto the salmon fillets, top with chopped spring onions and season with dill, salt and pepper. Drizzle a bit of lemon juice onto the fillets and then wrap the tin foil to create a parcel. Pop the parcel into the oven for around 20 minutes.

While the salmon is cooking away, put a big pile of salad leaves on a plate and dress with whatever dressing you like! I put a bit of extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice on mine, but any low fat, tangy dressing would work perfectly. Once the salmon is cooked through and flaky, lay the fillets on the salad leaves and munch away! Bon appétit!

Let me know in the comments if you've given this recipe a go or if you have any other delicious healthy recipes to share. Excuse the lack of pictures, I was so hungry when I made this that I ate it as soon as it came out of the oven, without a thought for taking some blog-friendly snaps!
