2 Ingredient Broiled Mediterranean Salmon

Mmmm salmon. Last week I was in a hurry to get dinner on the table, which happens a lot nowadays since I have a 6 month old baby. Actually, I haven’t posted on here in quite some time because of the same reason.

Life. Is. Busy.

But my baby is so worth all the craziness. 🙂

Anyway, this recipe came together quite easily and quickly because it only has two ingredients! Just salmon and tapenade! Salmon cooks fast too, so we were eating it in no time.

I like to include salmon in my diet at least 2-3 times a week because of it’s amazing health benefits.

  • Salmon is extremely high in omega 3 fatty acids that have powerful anti-inflammatory properties to soothe inflammation, and those omega 3s are great for the relief of arthritic pain.
  • Salmon is packed with muscle building protein and that protein keeps you feeling full.
  • Salmon contains bioactive peptides that improve bone density and strength.
  • Salmon makes you smart. Salmon contains DHA which is what the brain is made up of.
  • Salmon protects the heart by reducing inflammation, keeping the blood from clotting excessively and relaxing and dilating the arteries.
  • Salmon protects your eyes from macular degeneration, a chronic eye condition that can lead to blindness.
  • Salmon aids in the prevention of ADHD in preschool children and can boost academic performance.
  • Salmon helps you sleep because it contains an all-natural sedative called tryptophan.
  • Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin D, which is necessary for maintaining optimal health and immune function.
