7 Delicious and Healthy Salmon Dishes to Try Today...


I adore salmon dishes, especially in the summer’s heat when grilling season starts up in full swing. Salmon is the perfect lean protein and it holds up nice and firmly on a grill or in the oven. Salmon doesn’t dry out easily either, due to those healthy fats salmon contains, which makes it another great fish to cook with. Salmon is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamins and minerals such as selenium, magnesium, B vitamins, Vitamin D, zinc and iron. Salmon is also a great food to keep your skin healthy, and it digests easily too. If you want a skinny dish that seriously satisfies, turn to any of these tasty salmon dishes to try this summer.

1. Grilled Maple Salmon with Veggies

Grilled Maple Salmon with Veggies

This is one of my favorite salmon dishes, because it is so tasty and incredibly simple! If you’re not a fan of maple flavor, try adding some honey or even agave. Molasses could also be a possibility. Grilled veggies are so easy too! They literally take 5 minutes to cook and their flavors are incredibly caramelized and complex. Give this dish a try just as you’re heating up the grill this summer!
