20 Delicious Gluten-Free Salmon Recipes for your heart health. Many low carb recipes too! This post is sponsored by The Salmon Council.
I threw a lot of sweets at you over the past couple of weeks. A lot. Cake, cookies, brownies, candy, you name it, I made it and most of it contained chocolate. I think there was a soup recipe in there somewhere, but I admittedly went a little chocolate crazy in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day. It was all very good and thankfully, it was all low carb and gluten-free, but perhaps we need a little break from the sweets. Perhaps it’s time to focus on other food for a little while. Don’t worry, I will be back to the sweets and the chocolate soon enough, but today we’re going to focus on another of my favourite foods: salmon. I love salmon almost as much as I love chocolate and it doesn’t get nearly enough airtime here on All Day I Dream About Food.
And since February is American Heart Month, we have to give salmon its due. We know it’s important to take care of our hearts but that’s easier said than done in our busy lives. Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 811,000 lives per year. In fact, one woman dies from heart disease every minute. When it comes to heart-healthy foods, fish high in Omega-3s like wild-caught salmon top the list and we should be aiming for 2 servings of O-3 fatty fish per week. And the reality is that I just adore salmon and I always have. I love it in any form, from smoked to grilled to carpaccio. Knowing it’s good for my ticker is just icing on the salmon cakes. So when The Salmon Council asked if I would join them on their heart-smart campaign for February, it was a no-brainer for me.
In addition to rounding up 20 delicious gluten-free and heart-healthy salmon recipes, I also get to host a fun little giveaway for you. This Heart-Smart Gift Pack includes:
- $30 Visa Gift Card
- 1 Hooked on Salmon Insulated Tote Bag
If you’ve never had cedar-planked salmon, you need to remedy that immediately. Or at least when summer comes and you can get the grill out again. It makes for the most tender fish you can imagine and I’ve included several great recipes from great bloggers below!
