Under 30 Minutes to Healthiest Main Dish: Flaxseed Crusted Salmon

September 26, 2010

Start off the week right with this recipe for Flaxseed Crusted Salmon. These are two of my favorite ingredients, and this combination is really delicious and healthy all in one. Flaxseed is often called the “most powerful” plant food there is. It’s linked to so many things including reducing cholesterol, menopausal symptoms, constipation and arthritis. It also aids in protection against cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Both salmon and flaxseed are loaded with Omega-3 essential fatty acids (the good fats) shown to have heart-healthy effects. Salmon is also an excellent source of protein and B vitamins. This recipe is so simple and light that even the kids will enjoy it. For more information on benefits of flaxseed see

We have a bag of flax seed in our freezer that we grind up to sprinkle over cereal and into smoothies. I have never thought of using it as a crust. Great idea!
