Salmon is also abundant in B vitamins which Spritzler, a registered dietician at Healthline, says may boost “energy production, controlling inflammation, and protecting heart and brain health”.

Add heavy cream, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms to the salmon if desired.

Spread olive oil mayonnaise or cream cheese on the salmon before baking.

I suggest pairing salmon with steamed or fresh vegetables under a cauliflower rice pilaf.

Happy cooking!
