SIMPLE Pan-Seared Cracked Pepper Salmon

healthy eating recipes Jan 26, 2019

My youngest sister hates fish. She does that thing where you barely close your mouth and your upper lip starts to curl when you eat something "distasteful." With that in mind, understand the significance of her comment after trying this recipe: “Wow, that was actually pretty good!”

Big, BIG deal. Check out this quick, simple recipe below!

 

Note: Pairs well with roasted asparagus and sautéed green beans.

 

A couple of health notes about salmon...

It is a fatty fish…a good fatty fish. Salmon is high in polyunsaturated fats, specifically omega-3 fats which are good for your heart (1). This type of fat plays a key role in the prevention of heart disease – they keep your heart beating at a steady rhythm, can lower blood pressure, are essential for good blood vessel health and function and therefore reduce your risk for atherosclerosis.

The body cannot produce Omega-3 fast, so they must be consumed in our diet. The general recommendation is to eat fish 1-2 times per week.

Use this healthy recipe to replace red or processed meat dishes in your diet.
