Magic Baked Salmon

(Family Features) - Looking for a new dish to serve to your family and friends? Why not add salmon to your cooking repertoire for a healthy & convenient alternative.

Salmon's popularity has grown substantially over the past few years as more and more people are realizing its health attributes. People love the taste of salmon, and since it cooks so quickly it is convenient; making it a dish that can easily be prepared after a long day at the office or at home on the weekends.

Salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids important for any age group. If you want to prepare salmon, remember to purchase the freshest fillets you can. Keep your salmon refrigerated until ready to prepare and be certain to always use a clean, dry surface for cleaning the fish. In order to eliminate a strong oily taste, Chef Paul recommends removing the skin as soon as possible and using a great flavored seasoning blend to enhance the fish's natural goodness.

If you are looking for a great way to liven up salmon, you may want to try Salmon Magic. This seasoning blend contains selected herbs and spices with subtle accents of dry mustard seeds. Its distinct flavors enhance the natural goodness of salmon or any other type of fish, shellfish or seafood. It is all-natural, with no MSG or preservatives and is Kosher supervised.

Warmer weather is heading our way and there will soon be picnics and other festive outdoor gatherings. Remember to follow Chef Paul's advice and `dine together with your family.' Mealtime should be a celebration and a chance for you and your family and friends to "catch" up on the latest events going on in your lives.

Here is a delicious salmon recipe to get you started in the kitchen. It's quick and easy with a cook time of 4 to 6 minutes.
