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