Horseradish Salmon

Omega-3 fats are good for your heart, but they can also be a boon to your waistline. Follow a low-calorie diet that includes more fish, and you'll drop more pounds than you would eating the same meal minus the seafood, suggests a study published in the International Journal of Obesity. One possible explanation: ounce for ounce, fish has fewer calories than almost all cuts of beef, pork and skin-on poultry. Researchers theorize that omega-3 fatty acids, the polyunsaturated fats abundant in cold-water fish like salmon and mackerel, switch on the fat-burning process in cells-provided you also exercise.

Ingredients

1 English (seedless) cucumber, cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/4-inch-thick half-moons

2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and ground black pepper

1/2 cup panko or coarse breadcrumbs 

2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, drained

4 pieces (6 ounces each) skinless, boneless salmon fillet

6 ounces baby spinach

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Line a large cookie sheet with foil.
