Why You Should Eat Salmon

When you are feeling sluggish, salmon is the perfect brain food. It’s an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals, but it’s the omega-3 fatty acids that will give you the brain boost. These fatty acids are thought to contribute to healthy brain function,  along with being good for your heart, joints and general wellbeing. Eating fish may reduce the risk of heart disease as well.

Spicy Chili Lime 10 Minute Sheet Pan Salmon Recipe

With our busy lives, I’m a huge fan of sheet pan dinners and I’m happy to share this new sheet pan salmon recipe that I think you’re going to LOVE!

When I travel, I love trying new food. I was lucky enough to visit the island of St. John, right before Hurricane Irma slammed into the island. While there, I ate at The Longboard where they served up the most amazing spicy Brussels sprouts that I had ever eaten. When I asked about the spices, they said they used Sambal Oelek. Sambal Oelek is a chili paste made fiery red chilies, vinegar and salt. I had never heard of this! So I immediately ran out and got some when I got home. You can find it at most grocery stores and it will change your life! I use it in so many dishes now.

Sambal chili paste is the perfect addition to this Sheet Pan Salmon recipe. A mixture of lime juice, honey and Sambal Oelek makes this salmon, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and peppers a mouthwatering dinner!
