If you're looking for a health recipe that is suitable for individuals with high blood pressure, and can help address concerns related to excessive salt intake and obesity, here's a suggestion:

Baked Herb-Crusted Salmon with Roasted Vegetables


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 4-6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried herbs (such as thyme, oregano, or rosemary)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Assorted vegetables (such as bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli, or carrots), chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, dried herbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place the salmon fillets in a baking dish and brush the herb mixture over the top of each fillet.

  3. In a separate bowl, toss the chopped vegetables with olive oil, dried herbs, salt, and pepper.

  4. Arrange the vegetables around the salmon fillets in the same baking dish.

  5. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the salmon fillets.

  6. Once cooked, remove the dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

This recipe incorporates lean protein from salmon, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids known to have heart-healthy benefits. It also focuses on using herbs and spices for flavor instead of excessive salt. Additionally, the inclusion of roasted vegetables adds fiber, vitamins, and minerals to the meal.
