Eating for Your Health: Salmon

Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce

Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce


Salmon is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids.  It has been shown to improve the health of your heart, eyes, skin, hair, and brain, and prevent cancer and reduce inflammation.  Now that is a list that everyone needs.  Salmon is easy to cook.  In addition to more complicated recipes, it can always be grilled, baked or poached.  In fact, it is one of my families standby quick and easy meals to just brush it with olive oil, sprinkle it with salt and pepper and bake it at 350 degrees until it flakes with a fork.  It is both super easy and delicious.  But, if you are wanting something a little more interesting, try this poached salmon with dill sauce.  It is one of my all time favorite recipes.
