Wild Salmon Chunks Served on a Bed of Baby Spinach

No Comments 10 March 2012

I’m always on the lookout for grilled salmon recipes, and when I came across this sauteed salmon recipe idea from my friends over at kosher.com and Joy of Kosher, I was inspired to put in on my before- the-fast menu .

 Health benefits of wild salmon:

  • speeds up your metabolism. This facilitates your sugar absorption rate and can lower your blood sugar level. Which in turn lowers your risk of developing diabetes.
  • For  shiny hair, bright eyes and healthy skin,  salmon consumption can do provide that as well.
  • Four ounces of wild salmon gives you a full day’s required amount of Vitamin D. That same amount of salmon also gives you more than half of the B12, niacin and selenium that you need daily. That four ounce serving of salmon gives you almost thirty grams of protein. That’s more than half of the Food and Drug Administration’s recommended daily amount.
  • salmon is a natural anti-depressant
  • Warning: FDA and EPA have  issued a recommendation that pregnant women and young children eat no more than two servings, or 12 ounces, of salmon and other low-mercury fish each week.
  • Read about mercury in farm raised salmon as opposed to wild salmon HERE

Health benefits of baby spinach:

  • A cup of spinach contains a little under 7 calories, almost a gram of fiber, and high levels of vitamins A and C.
  • Spinach has tons  of anti-cancer benefits. It has four times the beta carotene of broccoli. Spinach is also an excellent source of folate – an ounce contains nearly 25% of our daily requirement.
  • Spinach protects against age-related macular degeneration, a serious eye disease affecting older people.
  • Spinach contains folate which has cardiovascular benefits and promotes a healthy pregnancy.
  • Note: Spinach is among the 12 foods on which high levels of pesticide residues have been highly detected.  Please consider buying and eating only organically grown spinach.
