Introduction

This recipe is full of healthy ingredients, but focusing on two stand-outs below:

Wild Salmon: omega-3 fatty acid loaded! Simply put, these healthy fats have major heart health + overall anti-inflammatory health benefits.

Along with the fatty acid content, wild salmon has:

*the antioxidant amino acid taurine
*heart-healthy vitamin B12
*anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids
*immune-supportive selenium
*energy-producing phosphorus
*muscle-building protein
*heart-healthy niacin, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and potassium
*bone-building vitamin D

Manuka Honey: sometimes costly, but pure and used in moderation, has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties that may help treat numerous ailments, including irritable bowel syndrome, gastric ulcers, periodontal disease and upper respiratory infections.

Steps

  1. Mix the ingredients together for the marinade (aminos through ginger) - mix well.

  2. In a bag, place in the salmon + marinade- refrigerate overnight.

  3. When ready to cook- place in a skillet with all of the marinade over medium heat- cook through until salmon flakes easily + is opaque.
