Add some heart-healthy salmon into your weeknight meal plan. Here are 5 easy ways to prepare this healthy and sustainable, omega-3-packed fish.

Smoked

Prepared smoked salmon is a great alternative when you don’t have time to cook. Wrap around asparagus stalks for a fancy but effortless appetizer or along with a salad for a light meal.

Poached

Cooking salmon in a bath of wine, water and spices infuses it with flavor while keeping it tender and flaky. It keeps the calories low, too!

Grilled

Thread chunks of skinless salmon onto skewers and grill for dinner in minutes. Sprinkle with a spice rub to add big flavor without marinating.

Wrapped

Wrap salmon fillets in foil packets with lemon and fresh herbs for quick cooking and easy clean up.

Seared

Finely chop fresh salmon in the food processor for a tasty burger. Flavor it up with sweet pineapple and spicy chili pepper then give a quick sear in a nonstick skillet.
