Heart Healthy: Salmon

A top food for heart health, it’s rich in the omega-3s EPA and DHA. Omega-3s lower risk of rhythm disorders, which can lead to sudden cardiac death. Salmon also lowers blood triglycerides and reduces inflammation. The American Heart Association recommends two servings of salmon or other oily fish a week.

Some people find salmon a little intimidating, but once you play with it a little you’ll find that it is no more difficult than cooking steak or chicken.

Here is a great way to do fresh salmon:


Another easy way to add salmon to your diet is to buy it frozen and pre-portioned. That gives you a bit less to do and makes it as simple as grilling or pan frying until it’s done.

My favorite place to get salmon this way is Schwan’s. Click that and you will see salmon portions as well as salmon burgers. Both are quick and convenient ways to eat fresh tasting salmon without having to deal with large fillets or skins.
