This recipe is extremely easy to make for dinner and is so nutrient dense! SALMON is one of my favorite proteins because it also provides incredible fatty-acid power. This fish gives you a great dose (pretty much all your daily need) of Omega-3s, which are not as prevalent in the standard American diet. We consume a lot of Omega-6 (found in seed and nut oils), but for optimal brain functioning, heart health and decreased inflammation we need a properly balanced 6:3 ratio. Salmon checks that box! EPA and DHA are the two forms of Omega-3 that your body needs, both found in these wraps.
A note on salmon: I used sockeye salmon, because it has a deeper flavor profile with a bit more healthy fat content. You can use whatever salmon you like, however if it’s possible for you – try to choose wild caught. New research is coming out on super high levels of PCB pollutants and hormones. Choose wild caught whenever you can!
Here’s what you need:
- A piece of salmon
- Spices for the salmon (optional) – rosemary, apple cider vinegar, salt, red pepper flakes
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1/2 an onion
- Feta cheese (or cheese of choice)
- Hummus of choice
- Wraps/small tortillas of choice (I used Siete – amazing)
- Bonus: I topped mine with a homemade pesto. Pesto tastes unreal on this.
How to do it:
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and season the salmon. Pop it in for 18-25 min (depending on how you like it)
- Slice up the pepper and onion into small pieces and sautee on medium heat until the onion is translucent
- Slather some hummus in a line down the middle of the wraps
- Cut up the salmon and layer it with the veggies over the hummus
- Top with feta and BOOM. (and the optional pesto)
