Flaxseed is a superfood – full of fiber, lignans and omega-3 fatty acids that provides multiple preventative and restorative benefits to your body. It also has a wonderful nutty taste. But, did you know that when eaten whole, flaxseed passes through the gastrointestinal tract undigested?

To effectively add flaxseed to you diet, you must grind it. Pre-ground flaxseed is available in stores, but buying it whole and grinding itself will yield a fresher product. Also, it is important to note that flaxseed can become rancid quickly, so refrigerate any leftovers.

For this recipe, I ground a half cup of whole flaxseeds in my food processor.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 F.
  2. Place salmon on baking pan. Squeeze lemon juice over each fillet. Salt and pepper each fillet, then spread ground flaxseed onto each fillet.
  3. Cook for approximately 20 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 3 fillets salmon
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
