Best "Natural Psychiatrist" ADHD Salmon Recipe

"Hi Dr. Nicole, How can I make fish taste less fishy? I know you want me to eat fish for my ADHD but I hate the way it smells. Please help!"

Jennifer B Cave Creek, AZ

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for the great question. I also hate the smell of fish. I never ate it until I went to Naturopathic Medical School and realized the importance of Omega-3's for brain health. A Naturopathic Doctor, "Dr. Bruce" taught me this recipe. This recipe is fast and easy to make. You can use any kind of fish that is low in mercury.

If I can make this recipe as a very busy Naturopathic Doctor, then ANYONE can make this recipe. Combining the simple whole foods ingredients of salmon with Rosemary is not only an amazing tonic for the cardiovascular system, but also imperative for ADHD, memory loss and concentration as well. The omega-3's in salmon are very important for dry skin, psoriasis, eczema, shiny thick hair, and many dermatology conditions!

The omega-3 oils combine nicely with the anti-oxidant and circulatory properties of Rosemary to give your brain a much-needed mental boost! This is brain food at its finest! Try eating this salmon for lunch to have a productive afternoon at work. This is the perfect recipe for someone with ADHD.

Dr. Nicole’s Rosemary Memory Salmon

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Marinate salmon in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes in lemon juice to get rid of fishy smell
  • Coat one salmon fillet per person in olive oil (My Golden Retrievers are “people” too so they each get a piece of salmon to give them a healthy, shiny coat)
  • Chop at least 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary per fillet and cover if not smother with rosemary goodness.
  • Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt, crushed pepper (can use slices of fresh garlic too of course!)
  • Bake 15-25 minutes in a shallow glass dish depending on thickness.
  • I serve this with fresh lemon wedges, capers, steamed wild rice, broccoli, asparagus, or a big green salad, or your favorite green veggies!

Growing Rosemary in your yard or garden is one of the most low-maintenance herbs possible. Simply plant in a sunny location, water if you remember, and pinch back as needed! Rosemary makes for fabulous, inexpensive shrubbery and each time you prune some back you can use it to make a recipe! Be sure to stop by and visit your rosemary often, pinch off a sprig to smell or chew on throughout the day as a potent antioxidant that boost your immune system, mental health, memory, and brain! Check out my blog on Rosemary for more information about its benefits.
