A lean source of protein with monounsaturated fats, salmon is a weight loss superfood. Topped with almonds, another superfood with healthy fats, this salmon recipe is loaded with ingredients that may help curb your appetite.

> For the Salmon
2 salmon fillets, about 4 oz each (1 1/2" thick)
1/4 cup unsalted sliced blanched almonds
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp chopped fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp dried
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp salt
Black pepper to taste

  > For the Salad
2 cups frisee
1 cup green beans, trimmed and blanched
1 Tbsp low fat plain Greek yogurt (gluten free if needed)
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp dried cranberries
1/2 tsp chopped fresh oregano OR 1/4 tsp dried
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp salt
Black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and pat salmon dry. With a piece of foil, make a square, lifting the sides to create a ridge on all sides. Lightly coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the salmon on the foil.

In a small bowl, combine almonds, oil, oregano, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Top the salmon with the almond mixture, covering the top and all edges. Bake the salmon for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the salmon rest for at least 5 minutes at room temperature.

Meanwhile, make the salad. In a bowl, toss all the salad ingredients. Serve the salmon with the salad. Drizzle salmon with additional fresh lemon juice, if desired.
