Herb Basted Salmon

2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. melted butter
1 tbsp. fresh chopped basil
1 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
Salt and pepper to taste
4 wild salmon steaks or 1 wild salmon fillet (about 1 lb.)

Combine all ingredients except salmon in a small bowl to create baste.  Brush salmon with baste and bake in preheated 450 degree oven, about 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Brush with baste as needed.  Makes 4 servings.
Why It's Better:
Wild salmon is a great source of Omega 3s and protein.  It also contains vital nutrients like Vitamins A, B and D and a variety of minerals including Calcium, Selenium and Iron.  Eating salmon improves the look and texture of your skin and hair and can reduce the risk of colon cancer.  Salmon also improves cardio-vascular health and lowers blood sugar levels.
