  • Nutrition Tip

    Incorporating salmon into your diet can have many health benefits. Salmon contains a large amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which are an essential, "healthy fat," with anti-inflammation and immune supportive properties. Diets rich in omega-3s may help to decrease the risk of developing certain types of cancer, heart disease, and depression. Additionally, salmon is a good source of B vitamins, thiamine, niacin, and Vitamin D.

    American Cancer Society recommends limiting red meat to 11 ounces per week. Consider replacing your next beef meal with this delicious salmon recipe. With fresh citrus and herbs, this salmon recipe will go great with sides of any vegetables and whole grains of your choice.
