Best Salmon Recipe
We’ve all been there: that moment when you tell your kids fish is on the menu for dinner, and the struggle that ensues when their aversion results in moans, groans and even tears. Knowing the important health benefits of a diet rich in Omege-3 fatty acids inspired me to come up with this crowd-pleasing recipe for people who don’t like fish. And it’s 100% a winner! Just ask the kids.
The mild flavor of salmon combined with the perfect blend of pure maple syrup, salty soy sauce and fresh garlic is the secret to making this so, SO delicious for even the pickiest eater. And that’s so important because salmon is packed with antioxidants and healthy fats.
Health Benefits of Salmon
Did you know Omega-3s are considered essential in nutrition because our bodies can’t create them? We must consume them. Studies show they play a pivotal role in improving arterial function and can decrease inflammation, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cancer. But there’s more. Salmon’s chock-full of B vitamins that maintain optimal functioning of your brain and nervous system. A portion of salmon also provides more potassium than an equivalent amount of banana, which lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of stroke.
If that’s not enough to inspire a wellness-obsessed home cook like me to come up with a fish recipe that anyone would love, I don’t know what would!
I hope you enjoy the flavor and health benefits of one of the best salmon recipes ever. It’s also simple, easy and comes together quickly.
