Pan seared salmon fillets with lightly tossed asparagus makes for a quick and wholesome dinner option and also comes in handy if you only need to cook for one person. Salmon is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, along with being a rich source of Protein and B vitamins. Its even loaded with Selenium (an increase of selenium-rich foods may be able to help prevent coronary heart disease. It’s believed that selenium can benefit heart health once again by its ability to fight inflammation, increase blood flow, reduce free radical oxidative stress and help with antioxidant activity.) and potassium (an electrolyte that counteracts the effects of sodium, helping to maintain consistent blood pressure. Potassium is also important for maintaining the balance of acids and bases in the body) in short its great for ya!
If using a large chunk of salmon, you will need to sear the sides as well, for approximately 3 minutes on each side.
