Salmon: Rich in heart-healthy omega-3s, salmon is a low-calorie protein source that's also low in saturated fat. The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two 3.5-ounce servings of fatty fish like salmon every week.
There are many herbs (and spices) that can collectively be called herbes de Provence, but the basic recipe includes basil, fennel, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, tarragon, and thyme. *The Middle-Eastern spice blend called za’atar ingredients are: sesame seeds, ground sumac, and dried za’atar (an herb with a savory-thyme-oregano flavor).
You can buy za’atar blends in Middle-Eastern markets, but you can also make it at home. In the blend shown above, thyme and oregano or marjoram stand-in for the za’atar herb, which is rarely available in the United States. To make about 1/2 cup of za’atar, put 3 Tbs. dried thyme, 1 Tbs. lightly toasted sesame seeds, 1 Tbs. ground sumac, 1/2 tsp. dried oregano or marjoram, and 1/4 tsp. kosher salt in a spice grinder. Pulse a few times to mix and break up some of the seeds—there should still be many whole seeds visible. Store in a cool, dark place for up to six months. If sumac is unavailable, substitute 2 Tbs. dried lemon peel.
