Valerie Boese HeadshotFish is one of those foods that should be eaten often because of the health benefits it offers. If you’re like me, you know you should eat more fish, but it never appears to be too appealing unless it's covered in thick crunchy breading. Fish is packed with high-quality protein, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that supports a healthy diet. The American Heart Association recommends two servings of fish per week, especially oily fish like salmon, because it is an excellent source of omega fatty-3 acids, which are known to support heart and brain health. Consuming salmon is known to reduce inflammation, lower the risk of heart disease, and improve blood pressure levels. It is a firm and meaty fish that holds together well when grilled.

Never Fail Broiled Lemon Herb Salmon

However, not everyone has a grill, or maybe it is just too cold to stand out and grill. For your next salmon meal try this recipe; it turns out perfect every time. It is super easy and tasty: simply marinate the fish, and broil it for 10 minutes for a quick easy meal. This flavorful marinade, a combination of fresh lemon juice, crushed garlic, soy sauce, and herbs, adds superb flavors to the salmon.
