The American Heart Association recommends eating
fatty fish at least twice each week because of the health benefits to
the heart including decreased risk of arrhythmias which can lead to sudden
death, decreased triglyceride levels and perhaps a slightly lower blood pressure.
There are also many studies looking at benefits of omega-3 fats for brain and
Salmon is rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fats and so beneficial to our health but how do you make it taste good?
Here is a super simple trick to help flavor your salmon fillets – just add a some salsa! My favorites are a peach mango or peach pineapple salsa. Just put the salmon fillet in a non-stick skillet top with salsa and cover for 10 to 12 minutes and you have the most delicious salmon!
