Salmon, the star of this recipe, is a nutrient-rich fish with various health benefits, thanks to its composition of omega-3 fatty acids, high-quality protein, and essential vitamins and minerals. Here are some key health benefits of consuming salmon:
Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fatty acids are crucial for heart health, promoting cardiovascular function and reducing the risk of heart disease.
Heart Health: The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon contribute to lower blood pressure, improved cholesterol levels, and reduced inflammation, all of which are essential for maintaining heart health.
Brain Function: DHA, one of the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon, is a major component of the brain. Regular consumption of salmon may support cognitive function, improve memory, and reduce the risk of age-related cognitive decline.
Protein Source: Salmon is a high-quality source of protein, providing the body with essential amino acids necessary for muscle repair, immune function, and overall cellular health.
Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: Salmon contains vitamins such as B12, B6, and D, as well as minerals like selenium and phosphorus. These nutrients play roles in bone health, immune function, and energy metabolism.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties: The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon have anti-inflammatory effects, potentially reducing inflammation in the body and contributing to the prevention of chronic diseases.
Supports Weight Management: The protein content in salmon can contribute to feelings of fullness and satisfaction, making it a beneficial food for those looking to manage their weight.
Promotes Skin Health: The omega-3 fatty acids and astaxanthin (a compound found in salmon) may contribute to healthy and radiant skin by reducing inflammation and protecting against oxidative stress.

Omega-3 Rich Salmon with Creamy Artichoke & Parmesan Recipe
Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 25 min | Serves: 2
+ 1 tbsp ghee
+ 2 salmon fillets
+ 1 onion, thinly sliced
+ 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
+ 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
+ 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
+ 1/4 cup heavy cream
+ 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
+ 2 cups spinach
+ 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
+ juice of 1/2 a lemon
+ sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat a skillet over medium heat and melt ghee. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then sear them in the skillet until golden brown on each side. Remove the salmon from the skillet and set it aside.
In the same skillet, add thinly sliced onions and minced garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent and fragrant. Sprinkle smoked paprika and red pepper flakes into the skillet, stirring to infuse the aromatics with a warm, smoky flavor. Pour in the heavy cream, stirring continuously to create a creamy base for the dish.
Next, add roughly chopped artichoke hearts and fresh spinach to the skillet. Allow the spinach to wilt and the artichokes to blend into the creamy mixture. Gently place the seared salmon fillets back into the skillet and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the dish, and season with additional salt and black pepper to taste. Serve and, for even more health benefits, enjoy it with a rich salad containing both fresh and fermented veggies!
