Summer Salmon with Fresh Avocado Salsa Recipe (and Short Demo Video!)

In the summer months, especially in high heat and humidity, sometimes you just want to eat a light, healthy meal. Fried or heavy food can be unappealing, and can work against any fitness plans you hoped to maintain for beach and pool time.

Salmon is my go-to for a nutritious meal because it packs such a punch. Alaskan wild-caught salmon, specifically, is considered sustainable, and it has the lowest risk of high mercury levels. Beyond this, though, salmon has incredible health benefits. The fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which can improve cardiovascular health. For pregnant women, ingesting omega-3 can benefit the brain development of the fetus. (I’m currently pregnant and happily skip my fish oil pill on salmon night!)

Salmon is also very high in protein, vitamin B-12, vitamin D, and selenium.
