Shallot & Thyme Salmon

There are two things I look for when searching for new recipes:

1. Fat loss foodie friendly

2. Simplicity

With a very busy life working a full time job, teaching classes morning and night, and taking care of my husband and 3 dogs, I don’t have time to be a slave to my kitchen.  I have 2-3 hours on the weekend to get my meals made for the week.  The WHOLE week.  Sure, I CAN cook every day but I choose to check food prep off my list on Sundays.  This allows me to focus all of my energy on important things during the week.

A few weeks ago, I was digging through old recipes I had cut out of magazines and found this simple and clean way to make salmon.

It has seven ingredients.



(not shown: salmon, vinegar, greens)


Fast. Simple. Fat Loss Friendly.


Shallot and Thyme Salmon

1 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard

3 tsp white wine vinegar

5 tbsp. olive oil

3 tbsp. minced shallot

4 tsp minced fresh thyme

2 salmon filets

6 cups spring greens

S&P to taste

Preheat oven to 425.

Line a baking sheet with tin foil (for easy clean up).  Place salmon filets on the line sheet, skin side down.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, and olive oil.  Fold in shallots, thyme, and S&P to taste.

Brush 1/4 of the mixture on each salmon filet.  Let sit for 15 minutes.

Roast salmon for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Mix together remaining vinaigrette and spring greens.

For extra fat, protein, and anti-oxidants, I added chopped walnuts and dried cherries to my salad.


Cooking for fat loss doesn’t have to be time-consuming or difficult.

It should be easy, fast, and FULL of flavor!

Bon Appetit!
