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
*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.
Mix the ingredients together for the marinade (aminos through ginger) - mix well.
In a bag, place in the salmon + marinade- refrigerate overnight.
When ready to cook- place in a skillet with all of the marinade over medium heat- cook through until salmon flakes easily + is opaque.
