Rocco DiSpirito Salmon Recipe

If you are interested in healthy recipes, you may want to check out Rocco's book, Now Eat This!: 150 of America's Favorite Comfort Foods, All Under 350 Calories. This cookbook has LOTS of healthy recipes! Rocco has created lower-calorie and lower-fat versions of comfort foods such as nachos, deep-dish pizza and macaroni and cheese!

One EASY recipe from this cookbook that my family LOVES is ...

Salmon with Mustard Crust

1 small red onion, sliced very thin
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 small navel orange, peeled and cut into segments
4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)

Nonstick cooking spray
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat the broiler on low.  Line a baking sheet with foil; spray it with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a small bowl, mix the onion with the mustard.  Add the orange segments and toss to combine thoroughly.

3. Lay the salmon on the prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Divide the onion mixture among the 4 fillets, spreading it out to cover the surface of the fish completely.

4.  Broil the salmon until the onion mixture is almost charred and the salmon is just cooked through, about 8 minutes.

NOTE: I prefer to have the onion mixture less charred, so I bake the fish for about 5 minutes first and broil for less time.
