Baked Wild Salmon

Fresh fish is an excellent choice when you’re short on time. Opt for a wild, cold water catch like salmon, for a boost of omega-3s which have become quite scarce in the Standard American Diet, SAD. Make fish for dinner 2-3 times a week and see your health improve. Remember to use the Seafood Watch as a reference for the best selections.
