Healthy Recipe: Salmon in Parchment
Published: 1/31/2014

Salmon, like other oily fish (herring, sardines, mackerel), is rich in omega-3 fatty acids that reduce inflammation, protect against heart attacks, and possibly reduce one's chances of developing cancer. I recommend two to three servings a week of salmon or another oily fish rich in omega-3s per week. When you want something out of the ordinary, this is an easy and elegant recipe to try. It requires cooking parchment, which you will find in rolls or sheets at kitchen-supply stores and even many supermarkets. Parchment-wrapped food turns into taut packages as steam inflates the sealed pouches. (Be careful when slitting them open to avoid being burned.) The result is a delicate mix of textures and aromas that's sure to please.

Food as Medicine

Eating fish such as salmon as little as one to three times monthly may protect against ischemic stroke (a type of stroke caused by lack of blood supply to the brain, due to a clot or other factors), according to a meta-analysis of eight studies published in the July, 2004 issue of the journal Stroke.
