Many of us are looking for ways to add more fish to our diets. Salmon in particular, is an excellent choice as it boasts some amazing health benefits! It’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which helps support brain function, can lower your risk of heart disease, and protects the overall health of your blood vessels. Salmon also happens to be one of the few dietary sources of Vitamin D, which is important for the support and function of a healthy immune system.
Here is a super simple, yet delicious Roast Salmon recipe you can work into your weeknight routine.
