Salmon is chockfull of heart-healthy omega-3 fats, which may help to reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s recommended to include omega-3 rich fish (such as salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines) two times per week.

Instructions Of Japanese Salmon (Healthy Heart)

  • Combine all the ingredients except the oil in a ziplock bag, remove as much air as possible and marinate overnight (or at least 3 hours).
  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add salmon skin down, cook 2 to 3 minutes until crisp.
  • Check the skin to make sure it doesn’t cook too quickly – if it does, lower the heat and / or briefly remove the pan from the stove to allow the temperature to drop.
  • Drizzle the rest of the marinade in the ziplock bag on the flesh side. Flip and cook the flesh side for 2 minutes, or as desired.
  • I like medium salmon, so the inside is very moist and just cooked.
  • Rest for a few minutes, remembering that the salmon will continue to cook during rest, then serve.
