This is a great way to add protein to zucchini noodles for a balanced meal. We tried this heart healthy recipe and it was absolutely mouth-watering. This recipe elevates the salmon with a bright lemon herbed sauce.

The ingredients:

2 medium zucchini, spiralised or chopped

2 portions of salmon

1 tbsp dried parsley

¼ tsp oregano

¼ tsp thyme

¼ tsp rosemary

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp canola oil

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

salt & pepper to taste

sliced lemons for topping

The recipe:

1.  Preheat the oven to 180 C. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray

2.  In a small bowl, combine Dijon, oil, garlic, parsley, oregano, thyme, rosemary and garlic

3.  Layer the zucchini on the bottom of the pan then place the salmon on top of the zucchini. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste

4.  Top fish with marinade distributing it evenly between the fish and top with sliced lemons

5.  Bake in the oven at 180 C 20-25 minutes until fish is flaky and zucchini is tender

6.  Serve immediately with more sliced lemon and parsley
