Foil Wrapped Salmon with Capers

4 pieces of fresh salmon
2 tablespoon virgin olive oil
4 tablespoon capers
4 teaspoons lemon zest
salt and cayenne pepper

Season the salmon with oil, salt and pepper. Place each one of them in and individual foil sheet big enough to close it on the top. Pour 1 teaspoon of lemon zest and 1 tablespoon capers on each piece and close the corners leaving the center touching but not closed. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or grill for 10 minutes. Serves 4

FYI- Salmon is a superfood because it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, a type of fat that seems to decrease the risk of heart disease. This fish is also a prime source of protein and contains vitamin A and B vitamins. No matter what type it is–farm-raised, wild, canned, or smoked–salmon provides omega-3 fat. But the amount of the fat will vary, as will the sodium content. In addition to the heart-healthy benefits, the omega-3 fats in this fish have also been shown to promote joint health, contribute to the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system, and may possibly help prevent certain types of cancer.
