Eat More Fish

Eating salmon or other fatty fish twice a week provides major heart-protective benefits associated with omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oils, according to the American Heart Association. Use these creative recipes to start incorporating more of this healthy fish into your weekly regimen.

Simple yet radically sophisticated, our first dish, Sesame Salmon with Green Onions and Lemon, comes together in less than 30 minutes. For even better flavor, if you have access to fresh ramps or baby leeks, use them instead of green onions, and sub pea shoots (or your favorite baby lettuce or microgreens) for the arugula.
