Salmon is the healthiest fish on the planet. It’s loaded with nutrients and will fill you up in no time. This fatty fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. It’s tender structure and beautiful taste is something everybody agrees on. A perfect option for a nice dinner or a healthy lunch.

 This recipe is great for oven-baked salmon, but also for grilled or fried version. In that case, you can simply brush the fillets with the mixture and place it in a large non-stick skillet or a grill pan.

Gradually add broth while cooking, one tablespoon at the time, to prevent the tender salmon meat from sticking. Sprinkle with some more salt before serving or even Italian seasoning mix.

Lay some parchment paper over a baking pan. Set this aside. While preparing the dish, preheat the oven to 400°F.

Place the egg yolks and lemon juice on a small saucepan set over medium heat. Stir together with the lemon zest, thyme, 3 tbsp of broth, and some salt. Cook for 4 minutes.

Turn off the heat and include the oil in the mix. Stir well until the mixture thickens lightly.

Coat the steaks with the mixture. Lay them on a baking pan and add the remaining broth all over. Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes. 

Set the oven to 350°F and leave to bake for 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy with any low-carb veggies of your choice.
