Salmon A’la Monica

The moment you wake up you begin to think of what you should eat, and how quickly you can put something together. Many of us rush through the day, there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day…and when we finally have time to grab a bite to eat, we gobble it down. So I tend to cherish it, as my peers and I eat our meals away, I begin to notice that I’m always the last to finish eating.

These are 5 of my personal reasons why you should slow down:

  • Lose weight
  • Better digestion
  • Less stress
  • Feeling good
  • Actually tasting the food

Time is indeed precious, so I have a wonderful recipe for you to cook quickly, leaving you enough time to enjoy your meal nice and slow.

Here is a recipe for what I like to call -Salmon A’la me


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  •  2 (6 ounce) fillets salmon


  1. In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally (Optional).
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. Place sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork, your preference!

You may accompany this dish with Baked Potatoes, and a Strawberry Spinach Salad. Eating is the most enjoyable part of my day and now it can be yours too! Bon Appétit :)
