Father’s Day isn’t complete without grilling, but this year put a dietitian twist on the classic steak for the perfect Dad’s Day meal – try salmon steaks! Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids may decrease inflammation throughout the body, lower triglycerides, reduce blood pressure and decrease risk of cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association recommends incorporating fish twice per week as part of a heart-healthy diet.
Not only are you protecting Dad’s heart with this meal, but also the environment! Since 2017, 100% of Hy-Vee’s fresh and frozen seafood and sushi has been caught or farmed in a sustainable way, helping protect the environment and the ocean’s ecosystems. This will allow future generations of dads to enjoy seafood for years to come!
Try Salmon Steak with Chimichurri for a great Father’s Day recipe! Make it a MyPlate balanced meal by serving with grilled vegetables, fruit kabobs and a side of rice or whole-wheat dinner rolls. For more heart-healthy recipe inspiration, talk to a Hy-Vee dietitian today!
