A Salmon For Valentine

Valentine's is the Day of Hearts, so make sure that you give your heart the nourishment it needs with this succulent take on salmon by Giada De Laurentiis. Hearty as a main course, light enough to give you room for dessert, this salmon dish is also rich in omega-3, a fatty acid essential for a healthy heart.

Salmon in Lemon and Caper Sauce

4 salmon fillets
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp minced fresh rosemary leaves
2 lemons, sliced into 4 rounds each
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
4 tsps capers
4 pcs of aluminum foil

Mix olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Brush the mixture all over the salmon fillets before placing each fillet on a piece of foil. Top each fillet with lemon juice, wine, capers, and lemon slices. Fold the foil packet over the salmon and seal tightly. Grill packets over a preheated grill pan for 10 minutes. Serve wrapped in foil packets.

Try: Instead of foil, use parchment paper and bake the packets for Salmon en Papillote.
