Eating healthier is definitely getting easier. Cooking healthy food at home, though, can often be tricky. It’s tough to know which healthy recipes are actually going to taste good, and some recipes seem as though you need a culinary degree to figure it all out.

To make it easier for you, here are some recipes that taste amazing and are easy enough for novice cooks and clumsy bakers to get right. These are some of tried-and-true recipes. They're great intros to the anti-inflammatory diet, and are just a few of the many great recipes found in The Immune System Recovery Plan by Dr. Susan Blum.

Mediterranean Herb-Crusted Salmon

2 pounds wild Alaskan king salmon

4 tbsp prepared mustard

½ cup parsley, finely chopped

½ cup mint finely chopped

½ cup dill, finely chopped

¾ cup gluten-free bread crumbs

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt to taste

2 lemons, wedged


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread the mustard on the salmon.

Mix the herbs, salt, olive oil, and bread crumbs in a small bowl. Cover the salmon with the herb mixture, and line the lemon wedges around the fish snugly to trap the juices. Roast the fish for 18 minutes or until cooked through (time will vary depending on thickness).
