Heart Healthy Salmon

Salmon is among the most heart-healthy dishes and is high in Omega 3 fatty acids. The American Heart Association recommends that adults have two servings per week. Salmon contains up to 58% of your daily required intake of protein helping to maintain metabolism and promote weight loss. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals, this is a great meal with low calories. On average a 3-oz. serving of wild Alaskan salmon contains 135 calories. I bake and then broil for a few minutes to keep it simple. This is served on fresh butterhead lettuce leaves and garnished with small tomato slices and a few potato pieces. Top it off with thinly sliced spinach before serving. Next, spritz with some Meyer lemon and you are ready for a feast of flavor.
