Eating healthy this year can a delicious adventure in your diet. Salmon is important for heart health and the Omega-3 Fatty Acids in it help reduce cholesterol, maintain flexibility of arteries and veins and strengthen cardiac muscles, the essential amino acids repair damages to the cardio-vascular tissues. They help reduce the blood pressure too, as they lower cholesterol level and prevent hardening of walls of arteries and veins,
 thereby considerably reducing the chances of heart attack.

This salmon recipe is very unique and I have been craving some peaches lately-I wish they were in season. However, I am sure that frozen or canned will do until late summer for this dish! I do need to look at the other links, your variety will make it easier to have this healthy fish more often. Have a great day!

This sounds yummy, Claudia! Salmon is my families favorite fish and I personally love anything with an Asian flair so I will have to try this.

I'm saving this - I promised husband salmon once a week and this is a nice change - love the bold flavors and salmon can hold its own!

I would never have thought to pair peaches with salmon. We eat salmon once a week, so I'm always an the prowl for new ideas.
