Baked Salmon with White Sauce

Image

Seafood always a favourite meal,mostly for dinner, i prefer fish to any other meat as it s lighter on the stomach:)

Salmon is an all time favourite for baking or grilling,one of the richest in omega 3 fatty acids! Fish contain unsaturated fatty acids, which, when substituted for saturated fatty acids such as those in meat, may lower your cholesterol. But the main beneficial nutrient appears to be omega-3 fatty acids in fish. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of unsaturated fatty acid that’s thought to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation in the body can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease.Omega-3 fatty acids may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, boost immunity and improve arthritis symptoms, and in children may improve learning ability. Eating one to two servings a week of fish, particularly fish that’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, appears to reduce the risk of heart disease!

Well lets get on to the recipe:)

Meanwhile heat some oil in a pan and add the onion and garlic until light brown,reduce the flame.Add a pinch of salt,be careful not to add more as the butter also will have salt in it.Add the chopped dill leaves and saute it for a few seconds and then add the fresh cream and get it to boil.Then put in the butter and mix it well.Once they re all blended well sprinkle little bit of pepper powder and put off the flame.

Strain this mixture,so that you get a clean and smooth white sauce.
