Body: eating more salmon

A fillet of salmonImage via Wikipedia
Salmon is higher in Omega 3 fatty acids than most fish and it is low in saturated fat. Okay listen, it is even low in calories! It is amazing! I had a nice sized slab of the pinky delightful fish yesterday on a big bed of dark green spinach, lettuce, and other salad greens. I drizzled an italian/balsmic mixture of dressing over the whole thing. It was so delicious!

The health benefits of incorporating Salmon in your diet are undisputed - Almost everyone agrees EAT MORE SALMON. I know I am going to after that delicious experience yesterday.
Here is a recipe to try-

1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets
lemon pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil


1.Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
2.In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
3.Preheat grill for medium heat.
4.Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Sounds so good!!
