This recipe is so delicious, even the non-fish eaters in your family will love it! You can't taste the fish AT ALL. My kids LOVE it (even my daughter who doesn't like fish). And salmon is SO good for your family's health! It is recommended that we all eat fish at least three times a week.
healthy & delicious!

Wild salmon is loaded with protein and is a great source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids (DHA and EPA). It will help improve heart health & depression in adults and is also great for aiding in children's brain development. Feeding salmon to children has been shown to help in the prevention of ADHD.
It is an excellent source of Vitamin D and Selenium! Which are important for healthy bones & teeth and fighting heart disease, cancer & thyroid disease. It is also a great source of Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Niacin & Phosphorus. And a good source of choline, pantothenic acid, biotin and potassium.
Did you know that eating salmon during pregnancy can also help promote good sleeping habits for your baby later.
"During pregnancy I read the 'What to Expect When Expecting' guide book and found it to be very helpful. Our kids had terrific sleep habits when they were babies and they all slept through the night within the first 2 months after birth. Sleep for EVERYONE is super important during this time! I don't think it's just lucky, I honestly believe it had something to do with the guidelines I followed. I read that if you load up on your Omega 3's during your 3rd trimester it helps promote healthy sleep habits for baby later. Not only that, it's also great for baby's brain development!
Here's an article I recently came across on DHA Omega 3's that's an interesting read if you're an expecting or nursing mother - http://www.dhaomega3.org/Life-Stages/Pregnancy
