The herb crust gives the fish incredible flavor and locks in moisture. This delicious dinner comes together with six simple ingredients in less than 20 minutes. A fabulous way to reap the benefits of salmon’s heart healthy fats. Salmon fillets are often sold with the skin on, but you can ask the person behind the fish counter to take it off for you. Don’t overcook these fillets; watch them carefully so that they come off while the meat is still moist and flavorful.
