Fun Health Facts

Salmon is one of the healthiest choices of seafood there is. One reason is that they're packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are believed to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure. Interestingly, your body can't produce omega-3 fats, meaning you must get them from your diet.

Just like omega-3s, salmon is also a rich source of protein which is something you must get from your diet. Protein helps the body with many processes including the healing process, bone health and muscle mass.

Salmon is also loaded with selenium. While our bodies only need trace amounts of it, selenium is believed to reduce cancer risk, lower thyroid dysfunction and promote bone health.

List of Ingredients

  • 8 oz baked salmon

  • Mayo (sub ½ mashed avocado for AIP)

  • Lemon juice

  • Chives

  • Capers in juice

  • Dill

  • Oregano

  • Salt

Tips & Tricks

  • Do not overbake the salmon. The fillet is perfect between 125-135F.

  • Buy and support wild-caught salmon, if possible. The meat is lower in contaminants and safer overall.

  • Farmed salmon is also called Atlantic Salmon in grocery stores.
