404 Maple Pepper Salmon

Maple Pepper Salmon


You can never get enough Omega-3 fatty acids and there is no more delicious way than to cook up some wild caught salmon! Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for our health but we cannot make them in our bodies so we have to get them from the foods we eat. Omega-3s are important for numerous normal bodily functions such as blood clotting and building new cell membranes in the brain. We can also see a lot of benefits from eating enough Omega-3 fatty acids such as softer hair, nails, and clearer skin. Getting enough Omega-3 fatty acids can also mean a more supported immune system and better overall health. Try out this recipe that only has five ingredients and is super simple but still very tasty.

Here is a list of good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids:

  • anchovies
  • bluefish
  • herring
  • mackerel
  • salmon (wild has more omega-3s than farmed)
  • sardines
  • sturgeon
  • lake trout
  • tuna
