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.
