Sesame Crusted Salmon with Orange Miso Sauce Recipe

Preparation Time: 5-10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 4-5 Minutes
Serving Size: 4

Here's a simple fact: Omega-3 fatty acids are really good for the human body. But because our bodies do not produce them, we must get them from the foods we eat.

Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids confer numerous benefits and may be helpful in mitigating such conditions as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis - to name a few. They may also aid in weight loss.

Despite all these benefits, the average American gets only 1 gram of omega-3s per day. While the National Institutes of Health recommends 2 grams a day, some nutritional experts recommend up to 4 grams for maximum results.

Here's a tasty recipe for salmon, a food rich in omega-3s. Try it out - it may encourage you to get more omega-3s into your diet.

Omega-3 are the essential fatty acids known as the “super-unsaturates”. They are a family of essential nutrients which when present in the diet over a long period of time, may have thousands of times the power of aspirin to stop the inflammatory reactions responsible for arthritis, migraines, colitis, and other similar ailments.
