EAT WELL: Salmon with Mustard & Ginger

Fish is generally a healthy protein choice, lower in saturated fat, total fat and calories than a comparable portion of meat or poultry.

Some fish, particularly fatty, cold water fish such as salmon, mackerel and herring are high in omega-3 fatty acids, a type of fat that helps make your blood less likely to form clots that may cause heart attacks. Anchovies, sardines and lake trout are other good sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Especially for those at risk of heart disease, the benefit of eating fish that’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids outweighs potential risks. The recommendation is to eat fish that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids at least twice a week. Generally speaking, two 3-ounce servings are sufficient.

Consider the following salmon recipe along your way to maintaining a happy healthy heart!
* Salmon with Mustard & Ginger

 Ingredients:
8 oz salmon fillet
2 tsp + 1 TBS lemon juice
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp soy sauce
2 TBS cilantro (optional)
2 TBS grated ginger
salt and pepper to taste
 
Directions:

To Quick Broil salmon, preheat broiler and place an all stainless steel skillet (be sure the handle is also stainless steel) or cast iron pan under the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot. The pan should be 5 to 7 inches from the heat source.
Rub salmon with 2 tsp fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. (You can Quick Broil with the skin on; it just takes a minute or two longer. The skin will peel right off after cooking.)
Using a hot pad, pull pan away from heat and place salmon on hot pan, skin side down. Return to broiler. Keep in mind that it is cooking rapidly on both sides so it will be done very quickly, usually in 7 minutes depending on thickness. Test with a fork for doneness. It will flake easily when it is cooked. Salmon is best when it is still pink inside.
Top salmon 1 TBS lemon juice and the remaining ingredients.
Serves 2

In addition to salmon, other fish that are good for the heart include:

Albacore
Black bass
Bluefish Carp
Channel catfish
Herring
Lake herring
Lake trout
Mackerel
Pompano
Tuna (packed in water)
Whitefish
