SALT LAKE CITY – Adding fish to your diet brings health benefits, and pairing it with a chilled spinach and strawberry salsa makes for a bright and healthy summer meal.

“In the summer months, I love grilling and smoking all kinds of meat,” says Josh Broadbent, Executive Sous Chef at Intermountain Healthcare. “The spinach and strawberry salsa may not be a traditional salsa, but it is a great, rounded addition to the dish, with a lot of flavor of jalapenos and cucumber in the mix. I love how light the salsa tastes and it really makes the baked good salmon pop. “

Baked salmon is a simple dish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids and great for heart and brain health. Eating whole fish has been shown to be more protective than taking a fish oil supplement, likely due to the presence of protective nutrients like selenium and antioxidants found in fish but not in fish oil supplements. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish, especially oily fish like salmon, at least twice a week.
