Delicious Baked Salmon Marinade

Enjoy This Simple Delicious Salmon Recipe

This is a simple delicious recipe that is nutrition and heart healthy. Salmon contains unsaturated fatty acids, which, when substituted for saturated fatty acids such as those in meat, may lower your cholesterol. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of unsaturated fatty acid that may reduce inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation in the body can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease.

Omega-3 fatty acids can decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, decrease stroke and heart failure risk, and reduce irregular heartbeats. Eating at least one to two servings a week of fish, particularly fish that’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, appears to reduce the risk of heart disease, particularly sudden cardiac death.

Make this delicious salmon marinade with a sweet potato and a veggie you love. Your heart  and mouth will be singing!

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
