As many of you may have figured out by now, I love my salmon and highly recommend it for your health. Salmon is a fantastic brain super food rich in omega-3s, low in calories, and high in protein! The following recipe is from The Heart-Brain Diet, a special report from the editors of the Tufts University Health and Nutrition Letter. However, I have done a little editing to the original recipe, removing bread crumbs which convert to alcohol, and replacing them with coconut flakes. I hope this tastes as delicious as it sounds! Try it out and let us know what you think!
