Recipe Alert: Salmon that packs a punch

We love this dinner because it packs a punch with its fresh taste and health benefits. Bonus points because it looks restaurant worthy! Salmon, asparagus, and jicama are the key ingredients in this dish and are a great source of protein, fiber, and vitamins. Salmon is rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, it’s a great source of protein, and it is high in B Vitamins. Asparagus contains vitamins A, C, E, K, and B6, as well as folate, iron, copper, calcium, protein, and fiber. It contains soluble and insoluble fiber, making it a good choice if you’re trying to lose weight.  Jicama is low in calories but high in a few vital nutrients. It provides one-quarter of the suggested daily intake of fiber per serving and 44% of the daily value per serving of vitamin C.
