It also doesn’t hurt to know that fish is low in saturated fat, high in protein and vitamin D. So what are you waiting for? Cook your kids this delicious salmon dish today.

Heart-healthy Salmon


2 center-cut salmon fillets (6 oz. each)

1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

¼ cup finely chopped cilanto

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, or to taste


1. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow bowl. Toss well with lemon juice, cilantro, Jolly Canola oil, and pepper. Let rest for 15 minutes.

2. Cook the salmon, skinside down in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan and carefully lifting the salmon with a spatula to loosen it from the pan.

3. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover the pan and cook until the salmon is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more. The skin should be crisp and the flesh medium rare.

4. To make the salsa: Finely chop onion and mince garlic. In a bowl toss onion and garlic with cilantro.

5. Chop tomatoes and mango, add to onion mixture, tossing to combine.

6. Peel and pit avocados and cut into 3/4-inch pieces. Add avocados, lime juice, and pepper to taste.
