You will want to start making your Lemon Poppy Salmon by first placing your salmon filet on a pan lined with parchment paper to prevent it from sticking. Dribble a little bit of coconut oil on your salmon filet, which will help them crisp up when you bake. Next comes a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to give your Lemon Poppy Salmon that fresh citrus kick, followed by a dash of sea salt.
To make sure your Lemon Poppy Salmon comes out perfectly, it will need to bake 5 minutes in the oven on high broil before you add the finishing touches – poppy seeds! Salmon is truly the perfect fish when you are trying to eat healthy: easy to make, good for your heart, skin, and hair. When you are shopping for fish to make this Lemon Poppy Salmon, Arielle recommends you opt for wild instead of farm raised to ensure it is the cleanest fish available.

[SOUND] I'm Arielle Haspel
from HealthiNation, and
00:00:04.354 --> 00:00:09.651
today we've got a citrusy lemon
poppy salmon, my go to dinner.
00:00:09.651 --> 00:00:13.071
00:00:13.071 --> 00:00:16.361
One of my go to dinners, because it
takes less than ten minutes, and
00:00:16.361 --> 00:00:18.720
you only need these ingredients.
00:00:18.720 --> 00:00:19.420
00:00:19.420 --> 00:00:24.350
Here I've got some wild salmon,
poppy seeds, that's the secret ingredient,
00:00:24.350 --> 00:00:28.050
a little bit of lemon,
a little bit of sea salt, and coconut oil.
00:00:28.050 --> 00:00:33.420
So literally all you do is
place the salmon onto the pan.
00:00:33.420 --> 00:00:36.240
I always like to put a little bit
of parchment paper on the pan so
00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:37.620
it doesn't stick.
00:00:37.620 --> 00:00:40.470
All right, so first we're gonna put
on a little bit of coconut oil,
00:00:40.470 --> 00:00:42.560
and this helps it crisp up a little bit.
00:00:42.560 --> 00:00:45.600
And then we're gonna add some lemon juice.
00:00:47.990 --> 00:00:50.680
And then we're gonna add
a little bit of sea salt.
00:00:50.680 --> 00:00:53.330
Now the trick is, you don't want to
put on the poppy seeds just yet.
00:00:53.330 --> 00:00:56.290
We're actually going to be putting
them into the oven first and
00:00:56.290 --> 00:00:59.640
then we're gonna put the poppy
seeds on after so they don't burn.
00:00:59.640 --> 00:01:04.180
Five minutes in the oven on high broil,
see you in a few.
00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:05.940
Salmon is just the perfect fish.
00:01:05.940 --> 00:01:07.895
It's easy to make, it's good for
00:01:07.895 --> 00:01:11.950
your heart, you get glowing skin from
eating it, and it's good for your hair.
00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:16.226
I always recommend wild
over farm raised too,
00:01:16.226 --> 00:01:18.811
because It just means that
it's a cleaner type of fish.
00:01:18.811 --> 00:01:20.911
00:01:20.911 --> 00:01:21.931
00:01:21.931 --> 00:01:26.460
Zesty, citrusy, and super refreshing.
00:01:26.460 --> 00:01:30.990
The perfect fancy schmancy
dinner in less than ten minutes.
00:01:30.990 --> 00:01:33.400
I'm Arielle Haspel, and
thanks for watching.
00:01:33.400 --> 00:01:36.065
PS, do I have any poppy seeds in my teeth?
00:01:36.065 --> 00:01:39.384
