Omega 3s have been quite the topic of conversation when it comes to all the benefits that we can get from having the right amounts in our bodies. Salmon just so happens to be an incredibly rich source of Omega 3! I know some people are not that big of a fan of the “fishy taste” that fish comes with, but what if I told you that the difference is in the way you prep your fish?

This honey ginger sesame salmon dish accompanied by coconut rice (coconut rice recipe) is a combination of wonderful ingredients that add amazing flavor to salmon too wonderful for words to describe. But if I have to sum it up in one word I’d have to go with: Yum!
