Filled with protein and rich in heart-healthy omega-3s, salmon is one of the healthiest fish you can eat. This dish illustrates its ability to deliver big flavor — even with a very simple recipe.


  • 1 tablespoon oil, olive, extra-virgin
  • 1/4 small onion(s), red
  • 1 large zucchini
    thinly sliced into rounds
  • salt
    to taste
  • pepper, black ground
    to taste
  • 2 fillet(s) fish, salmon fillet
    (6-ounces each)


  • 1

    Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add zucchini and cook until softened and lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Cover and cook 2 minutes more. Season vegetables well with salt and pepper; transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

    Season salmon with salt and pepper. Heat remaining oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon, skin side down, and cook until lightly browned, 3 minutes per side. Serve with vegetables.
