This is a lovely way to prepare salmon, the pan of water creates a moist environment, and the low baking temperature allows the salmon to cook slowly, virtually ensuring success. The lemon relish is a tasty complement to salmon’s natural sweetness. Salmon is prized for its high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, but it has many other benefits as well. Salmon has bioactive peptides that provide support for joint cartilage, insulin effectiveness and control of inflammation in the digestive tract. Salmon is rich in vitamins D, B3, B6 and the minerals selenium and phosphorus, as well as protein.
