While we’re on the subject of omega-3 fatty acids, did you know that February is American Heart Month? It IS! Therefore, there is no better time than now to spread awareness about the heart health benefits of salmon.

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF SALMON RELATED TO A HEALTHY HEART

  • According to research, omega-3 fatty acids are essential to a healthy heart. Since our bodies cannot produce them on its own, salmon is one of our best natural sources of omega-3s.
  • Eating two servings of salmon a week may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, and decrease risk of heart failure. ALL of that thanks to salmon’s powerful DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids.
  • The 20152020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend a shift from a diet high in saturated fats (like those found in beef and pork) to a diet rich in heart-healthy unsaturated fats (like those found in salmon).

On top of all that goodness, this is one of the few fish that’s very common, plus it’s absolutely delicious and very easy to prepare. WHO who wouldn’t want all of this?

My favorite method for preparing salmon is in the oven with veggies all around it, and bathed in fantastic saucy flavors.

  1. After having read all the replies, it is note worthy that all of them claim that the recipe sounds delicious and the veggies, blah, blah, blah. Not one of them said they actually made this recipe and it was outstanding. Those are the
    kind of replies that prompt me to cook something on the internet. Far too many times, I purchased cook books with all the wonderful pictures, and after having made the wonderful and colorful printed recipes, I was completely disappointed and sent the cook book back.
    Not saying this Salmon recipe is bad, only that all the people who reply to the printed recipe, should actually make it first, and then give it a wonderful and honest critique. I will make this recipe as I am a salmon lover, and the
    veggies sound wonderful too. Then I will rate it after the fact. Thank you for the recipe.
