Health benefits of salmon
Not only is salmon an excellent source of lean protein, but it’s one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids. It contains almost every B-vitamin and is rich in potassium and selenium.
All of these nutrients can:
- reduce the risk of heart disease
- decrease inflammation
- lower blood pressure
- improve brain health and function
- reduce the risk of stroke
- protect bone health
- improve thyroid function
- lower the chance of some cancers
Trimming green beans:
Instead of trimming the ends off of each individual green bean, you can make the job go quicker by doing them a batch at a time!
- Wash the green beans well and pat them dry. Make a small pile and line up all of the ends on one side.
- Grab all the beans in one hand and use a knife to cut off the ends.
- Rotate the beans the other way and repeat on that side. Now they’re ready to roast!
Chopping the cabbage:
- Remove the outer leaves, as these are tough and usually damaged. Rinse and dry the cabbage or use a salad spinner after it’s chopped.</li
- Cut the cabbage in half through the stem, then cut each half again to make quarters. Flip each quarter over and cut at an angle behind the stem to remove it.
- Lay each quarter on its side and slice through the width to make shreds. If you prefer longer shreds, cut through the cabbage lengthwise instead.
Or, to save some time, use a mandolin slicer. Adjust the blade for thicker shreds and start with the flat side down. Be careful not to cut your fingers as you get to the end of the wedge.
How to make the broiled salmon recipe
- Spread vegetables evenly on a lined baking sheet and toss with oil and seasoning. Roast until tender and lightly browned. Set aside.
- Place salmon skin-side down in a heated cast iron skillet. Add oil and seasoning to the fillets and broil until cooked through.
- Mix together the sriracha mayo sauce and drizzle over the salmon. Serve with the roasted vegetables and enjoy!
