Simple Salmon is one of my family’s favorite dinners and is also an easy, delicious weeknight meal option. Pair it with roasted vegetables to complete the meal! One key to delicious salmon is to cook it with the skin on, so make sure to buy it that way. This meal is gluten and dairy free, as well as paleo and diabetic friendly.

Further Food Commentary:

Increase your intake of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids with this deliciously simple salmon! Omega-3 fats (a.k.a. essential fatty acids) cannot be produced by our bodies and must be consumed through food sources. Consumption of omega-3 fats has been associated with wonderful health benefits such as lowering triglycerides, lowering blood pressure and protecting us against heart disease. These health benefits are due to the anti-inflammatory role of omega-3’s, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation in the blood vessels and joints of the body.

Fatty fish provide sources of omega-3 fats called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) & docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are more biologically available than alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is the type of omega-3‘s found in flaxseeds and walnuts. For anyone suffering from digestive issues or malabsorption, fatty fish (salmon, cod, krill) provide a more readily available form of omega-3 fats for the body to use.
