Omega 3’s Never Tasted So Good!

Creamy Salmon Fillet

Try this heart healthy creamy salmon fillet tonight!

One protein source that’s a must to start getting into your weekly diet plan is salmon.

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which will help enhance your heart health, improve brain health, combat diabetes, and foster a leaner body composition.

Omega 3’s are a healthy fat that too many people miss out on, and eating salmon makes meeting your needs easy.

If you simply don’t serve salmon that often because you aren’t fond of the taste or don’t know how to cook it, this recipe will make things simple.

It’s served with a creamy sauce, however unlike most creamy sauces that are high in fat and calories, this one is much lighter and actually packs in some protein thanks to the Greek yogurt.  So, it’s one creamy recipe you can feel good about eating.

It’s also a very spicy and tangy dish, so with a strong flavor, will be sure to satisfy your taste buds. Feel free to use more/less wasabi to meet your own personal preferences.

The Recipe

½ cup rice vinegar
¼ cup minced shallots
2 tbsp. brown sugar Splenda
2 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1 tbsp. minced garlic
3 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 ½ tsp. wasabi paste

4, 4 oz. salmon fillets
4 tbsp. fat free Greek yogurt
1 tsp. wasabi paste
½ tsp. rice vinegar
1 clove minced garlic
4 cups spinach leaves

Combine the rice vinegar, minced shallots, Splenda, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and wasabi paste in a bowl. Add salmon and let stand for an hour to marinate being sure to turn once.

Next, in a small bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, wasabi paste, vinegar, and garlic to make spread for the fish fillets.

Grill the fish on the BBQ or in the oven for 10 minutes or until it flakes easily.  Once finished, remove, top with sauce, and then and serve alongside a bed of cooked wild rice and steamed vegetables of choice.

Makes four servings.
