Health Benefits of Salmon

Salmon is highly nutritious – it’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, B vitamins, and antioxidants. Consuming salmon has been shown in research to reduce the risk of developing heart disease. It has also been shown to promote weight loss or to maintain a healthy weight, reduce markers of inflammation in the body, and promote brain health.

Wild caught salmon is preferred over farm raised salmon as wild caught tends to be higher in omega-3 fatty acids. Read this article, Wild vs Farmed Salmon: Which Type of Salmon is Healthier? to learn more about this topic.

How to Make the Lemon Garlic Teriyaki Salmon

You may make the Lemon Garlic Teriyaki Salmon the day before or the same day you plan on consuming. If you choose to make the recipe the day before, simply place all ingredients within a sealed container and refrigerate overnight. Marinating for 8-10 hours will further the flavor of the salmon. However, you may also make this recipe the day of as it still tastes delicious!

Side tip: cover a baking pan with parchment paper when the salmon is ready to cook, for a quick and easy clean-up.

What Can I Pair the Salmon with?
