Salmon is so nutritious and equally delicious. Loaded with healthy, satiating omega-3 fatty acids and quality protein, it should have a regular starring role on your dinner plate. Jarred citrus salad, available in the produce section of the supermarket, can be substituted for the orange and grapefruit sections. If you're cilantro-averse, try fresh chervil, parsley, or basil instead. LIke things spicy? Use a finely chopped serrano or habanero in place of the jalapeño.
