• Celebrate a Happy and Healthy Independence Day

    By

    Happy Independence Day! In my experience, when the flags are out, the grills are hot. Therefore, I’d like to share one of my favorite recipes — one that impresses as a unique combination and provides a wealth of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

    Jammin’ Salmon

    Serves 4

    Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup jam
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • ½ teaspoon paprika
    • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    • Four 4-ounce salmon filets

    Directions
    • In a small bowl, combine jam, mustard, paprika, and pepper. Wisk until well mixed. Spread jam mixture over salmon.
    • Grilling Instructions: Prepare grill for cooking over medium-hot charcoal (moderate heat for gas). Grill, flesh sides down, on foil (covered only if using gas grill) for 4 minutes. Turn fillets over and grill until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 4-6 minutes more.
    • Baking instructions: Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9×13-inch pan with foil. Bake at 350°F for 14-16 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with fork.
