This dish makes me wish that summer would last forever!
Lemon grilled salmon topped with a colorful, phytonutrient-packed summer salsa made with corn, strawberries, cherry tomatoes and avocado. This is the perfect dish to serve at your next summer soiree (or enjoy on any weeknight!).
Because salmon is a fattier fish with a firm texture and rich flavor, it pairs perfectly with the grill because it can withstand the heat.
Salmon has always been my favorite fish. It’s loaded with omega-3 fats, melts in your mouth and one serving meets 100% of your daily bone-fortifying vitamin D needs (a nutrient found naturally in only a handful of foods!).
This dish will help you meet your recommended two servings of seafood per week.
Did you know that only an estimated one in 10 people meet this recommendation? I recommend that my clients start small like swapping out beef for salmon one night or your ham sandwich for tuna.
Seafood is a “protein with benefits”.
It is a high quality, complete protein with good fats like omega-3s that have been linked to reduced risk of heart disease. Eating seafood regularly has also been linked to brain health. DHA, a type of omega-3 fat found largely in fish, is an essential building block of the brain.
