I got this recipe from Dr Oz’s site and have made it twice in the last couple weeks! It is very fresh and satisfying! I love incorporating salmon weekly into our meals. First of all, it is loaded with healthy omega-3s fatty acids which are beneficial for brain health and overall inflammation in the body. Secondly, everyone in our family likes it. Win-Win!
