Salmon is a nutrient powerhouse! First off, it’s an excellent source of lean protein- offering approximately 21 grams per 3 oz serving. Salmon also supplies our bodies with a high dose of Omega-3 fatty acids, which support a healthy inflammatory response and assist in cellular regeneration. A serving of salmon provides more than half our recommended daily value of selenium (another protector against free radicals), and Vitamin E, which neutralizes harmful free radicals that can lead to cancer and cellular damage. Salmon is also rich in Vitamin D, B12, B6, and other trace minerals. You’re on board, right? You get it? Salmon is great, especially when included in your meal prep recipes! That way you’re getting all these great benefits multiple times per week.
1lb Sizzlefish Coho Salmon

Honey 1/2 tbs
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
Chile and lime is a classic flavor combination: a little heat, a little zest. We love it on chicken, veggies, steak, portobello mushrooms, and omelettes, but especially in this salmon meal prep. Chiles are powerful antioxidants due to the significant presence of Vitamin C in them. Many peppers actually have more Vitamin C per serving than citrus! Whole oranges just happen to be a lot easier and more pleasant to eat than whole chiles, unless you’re into that sort of thing ? But we wanted to incorporate them into this salmon meal prep, both for the flavor pop and the nutrition boost. Don’t think your immune system is the only thing benefiting from the chiles though- they also contain capsaicin, a natural pain reductor and supporter of a healthy inflammatory response. Maybe this salmon meal prep is the perfect addition to your gym routine?
