When it comes to heart-healthy diets, many of us don't exactly have the best of track records. But don't worry. If your doctor has told you it's time to cut back on saturated fats, it doesn't mean you're condemned to eating boring bland food.
One bite of this rich, buttery salmon and you might just forget that it's loaded with heart-smart omega-3s. But wait, there's more! This succulent salmon pairs well with the bold flavor of Brussels sprouts — a cruciferous vegetable that has benefits of its own.
