If you’ve been avoiding fish because it seems like a hassle to cook, or because you’re accustomed to the fatty, breaded variety, take salmon to heart. Your heart will thank you for it. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are widely hailed for their potential to lower the risk of heart attack and ease inflammatory problems like arthritis. And best of all, salmon steaks are quick and easy to make!
