WELLNESS WEDNESDAY: Salmon - Heart Healthy

RECIPE                   Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

This recipe is packed full of flavor but also heart-healthy and rich in good fats. Salmon is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to decrease inflammation, increase good cholesterol, and lower triglycerides.  Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat which helps to lower cholesterol levels. They are also high in fiber and have more potassium than a banana.

2 lbs salmon, cut into 4 filets
1 T olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 avocado
½ small red onion, diced
Juice from 2 limes
1-2 T finely chopped cilantro 
Mix the salt, chili powder, cumin, onion powder and black pepper together, rub the salmon fillets with olive oil and then this seasoning mix.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Combine the avocado, red onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt to taste in a bowl. Chill until ready to use.
Grill (or broil) the salmon for about 5 minutes
Top with avocado salsa
