Eating fish is a great way to get a healthy, filling protein fix with healthy fats and is a great alternative to eating meat. From Health.com, here is a recipe for Pan Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Salsa.
Perfect for a summer night, this tropical salmon provides omega-3 fatty acids. Add fiber, which aids in digestion, with half a cup of whole-grain rice.
Yield & Time
serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and 1/3 cup salsa)
1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1/2-inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine first 5 ingredients (through pepper) in a bowl; set aside.
Heat a nonstick grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish with salt. Cook fish 4 minutes on each side or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork. Top with salsa.
