Coriander Crusted Salmon


Coriander Crusted Salmon

This recipe is loaded with garlic, coriander, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although it may not be favored by all, now might be a good time to incorporate some garlic into your diet. Garlic has been proven to have various medicinal benefits. Garlic contains a compound called allicin, which builds up your immune system to combat viruses. Throughout ancient history, the main use of garlic was for its health and medicinal properties (Rivlin, 2001). It's use was well documented by many major civilizations, including the Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese (Hayama, 2007). In addition to the immune boosting benefits, the salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which contain a myriad of benefits like reducing the risks of cardiovascular disease, anxiety, depression, and fighting inflammation and autoimmune disorders. That being said, I'm incorporating more beneficial foods into my diet and I wanted to get creative with my weekly dinners. This dish will surely knock out your taste buds!
