Fishing for Facts: Wild Salmon
Best for: Your heart
How it works: How it works: Wild salmon tops the list of fish with the most omega-3 fatty acids. (Sardines are up there, too, but well get to them in a sec-ond!) These healthy fats have been linked with a decrease in heart arrhythmias and triglyceride levels. An added bonus: New research suggests that three servings (about 9 ounces cooked) of oily fish, such as salmon, per week can help pre-vent Alzheimers disease.
Fix it fast: Season a salmon fillet with sea salt and black pepper. Broil 10?–15 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Meanwhile, saute 1 chopped leek in olive oil over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add a can of diced tomatoes. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth to pan, and bring to a boil for 3?–5 minutes. Spoon sauce over salmon.
