Orange Ginger Salmon - Bone & Joint Support Recipe

August 13, 2018

Orange Ginger Salmon Recipie

Salmon is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin D – both nutrients that are important in maintaining healthy joints and bones. Incorporating more Omega 3 fats into our diet, from fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, or mackerel), walnuts and flax seeds, can have important health benefits and help to counter inflammation.  General nutrition guidelines recommend at least two servings of fatty fish a week, but if you are battling any type of inflammatory condition, getting three or more servings a week may be a better target. Opt for wild versus farmed salmon for a leaner fish and a higher dose of Omega 3s. Aside from the health benefits though, salmon is an easy fish to prepare, and can turn an everyday meal into an elegant dining experience. This dish not only takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, but also tastes delicious, looks impressive, and adds a healthy dose of Omega 3s to your menu for the week!
