Salmon is a super food.
Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D and selenium. It is a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus and vitamin B6. It is also a good source of choline, pantothenic acid, biotin and potassium.
When it comes to salmon, quality matters. Choosing wild caught salmon will reduce the amount of mercury present in this fish. It will also contain lower the amount of omega-6 fats which are found in farm raised fish.
Try adding fatty fish and seafood to your diet at least once a week. It’s a great way to boost omega-3 fats which are anti-inflammatory, boost heart health, support joints and boost brain power.
Chili lime salmon is easy to make. I decided to have mine on top of a salad but this fish could stand alone with a couple of sides.

1/2 tsp chili powder
