Besides being heart healthy, the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of legal blindness among the older generation. Research also shows that a diet high in omega-3s from seafood may protect women from dry-eye syndrome.
NOTE: Wild salmon generally has fewer toxins than farmed salmon, so buy wild when you can.

SESAME GINGER SALMON RECIPE
Did you know that Salmon is so full of protein, vitamin A, and omega fatty acids, which are essential to the proper functioning of the heart and brain?
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
4 salmon fillets
FOR THE HONEY GINGER GLAZE:
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon of Sriracha (also known as nam phrik) to taste
1/2 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon of sesame seeds
To make the glaze, whisk together honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, Sriracha, ginger and sesame seeds in a small bowl; set aside. Next, in a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds and green onions. In a large bowl, combine ginger marinade and salmon fillets; marinate for at least 30 minutes and maximum overnight, turning the salmon over in the marinade occassionally. When you are ready to cook the salmon, preheat oven to 400 degrees F / 200 degrees C. Lightly coat a 9×13 inch baking dish with olive oil and place salmon fillets along with the marinade onto prepared baking dish and bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork (about 20 minutes). Serve the salmon immediately with the honey ginger glaze.
Serve on a bed of wild rice and sprinkle some fresh chopped spring onions over the top.
