At the table with Humanitas Health: Baked salmon fillet

July 3, 2018

If you are looking for a second friend of heart health, the baked salmon fillet is an ideal solution from several points of view. The use of aromatic herbs and gomashio instead of salt also makes it perfect for those suffering from hypertension.


“The gomashio is not only a condiment, but a true ally of health – explained Dr. Elisabetta Macorsini, nutritionist biologist and diet coach at Humanitas – and used in macrobiotic cuisine to lower cholesterol, promote digestive functions, regulate the intestine and strengthen the immune system”.


Let’s see how to prepare this tasty low-calorie main course.


Ingredients for 4 people


  • 1 salmon fillet of about 800 gr


  • 1 lemon


  • 5 sprigs of mint


  • 5 sprigs of parsley


  • 150 gr of Greek yoghurt


  • 7 strands of chives


  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Gomaoshio





1 – Turn on the oven at 210 °C


2 – Lay a sheet of baking paper large enough to roll your salmon fillet on a baking tray. Put the fillet of salmon with the part of the skin in contact with the baking paper and season with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, the juice of half a lemon and thin chopped herbs. Close the foil and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.


3 – Prepare the yoghurt sauce by adding a pinch of gomashio, a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and chopped chives. Mix and set aside.


3 – Remove the salmon from the oven, open the foil, taking care not to burn with steam, and serve with the yoghurt sauce. It’s great to eat with boiled potatoes or a spinach, fennel and orange salad.
