Citrus Steamed Salmon

We make it a habit to eat salmon once a week for all the great omega-3's. Plus, it's delicious! While I normally cook it crispy-skin style on the stove top, this way is equally tasty, and it is definitely easier!

Use any kind of citrus you have on hand to flavor this dish. I used orange this time, but it is also delicious with lemon and lime. If you like grapefruit, try it out!

1) 2-4 salmon portions (about 6oz each is pretty standard)
2) 2-4 teaspoon of your favorite cooking oil (Olive oil, ghee, coconut oil, avocado oil, etc!)
3) 1 citrus fruit of your choice
4) Salt and Pepper to season

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2) Take out a piece of aluminum foil and make sure it's long enough to we wrapped around your salmon pieces (about the size of a 13x9 cookie sheet)
3) Place your salmon portions skin side down on the aluminum foil.
4) Add 1 teaspoon of oil to each portion and rub on the entire surface. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, or any spices you prefer.
5) Slice up your citrus fruit into small discs.
6) Place your fruit on top of your salmon.
7) Roll your aluminum foil across your salmon, creating a pocket. Make sure you seal all sides so the salmon steams in the aluminum foil.
8) Cook at 400 degrees for 18-22 minutes, until salmon is your desired doneness. (I did mine for 20 minutes).
