Macadamia-Crusted Salmon

Macadamia-Crusted Salmon

Salmon and macadamia nuts are full of protein and essential fatty acids, in particular omega-3, which is crucial for our bodies. Omega-3 oils help combat age-related diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer’s through their anti-inflammatory properties. Not to mention, these fatty acid oils are also great for keeping the skin younger and suppler.

Enjoy this delicious dish that promotes a healthier & more youthful appearance.
