Omega-3 Bomb: Wild Salmon with Buttered Kale

WILD SALMON, BUTTER & KALE

The National Institutes of Health recommends an omega-3 daily intake of 1.6 grams for men and 1.1 grams for women. Omega-3 cannot be synthesized by the body itself so it must be obtained through diet. On top of fish oil capsules, nuts and vegetables such as walnuts, grass-fed butter, flax seeds and deep-sea fish also contain such unsaturated fatty acids.

You’ll find an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids in fatty fish, such as our feature salmon.

The bottom line

We can’t guarantee upping your omega-3s, will help you live until 110 or 120, but it probably won’t hurt your quest. Omega-3s are associated with dozens of health benefits, so eat your  salmon and sprinkle extra flax seeds into your smoothie.

While we know salmon is a wonderful source of omega fatty acids. WILD Salmon is an exceptional source of omega-3 fat, and it’s even better topped with a bit of grass-fed butter. Lemon lends the acidity, cutting the richness of the fatty fish, then add your fresh herbs to add flavor and antioxidants. Fantastic taste, healthy and easy…so here’s a great recipe to get your omega-3’s down the hatch!

Serves: 2          a great way to impress on date night…

Wild Salmon with Buttered Kale Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 wild salmon fillets (sockeye salmon is great)
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives, parsley, and/or dill
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • 1 bunch (12 ounces) kale, stems removed and leaves torn into pieces

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 320F.
  2. Place the salmon fillets on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Rub with 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil, season with sea salt, and top with any left over butter or coconut oil.
  3. Wrap the parchment around the salmon, folding the seams, and tucking them to make sure the steam doesn’t escape.
  4. Bake until fish is medium rare for approximately 18 minutes.
  5. While fish is baking, steam kale until just wilted for about 3 minutes.
  6. Drain kale, add 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil, salt to taste, and plate. Put the salmon on top, and sprinkle with chopped herbs and fresh-squeezed lemon. Serve.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

Came in very sick, and the staff/nurses were awesome, and treated me as soon as I arrived! Felt very cared for, and they will even run over and grab Popsicles if needed! Best experience at an urgent care that I have ever had!

KYLA McCARTNEY

Loved this place. Was worried I would have to wait a couple hours… Didn’t have to. Front desk, nurse and doctor were awesome. Felt like my family doctor. Thank you!

CHRIS BLESZINSKI

I couldn’t get an appointment with my regular doctor so I headed over to Integrative Urgent Care as a walk-in. There was no wait time and the staff was amazingly nice. I felt comfortable and that they cared about their patients. The facility is extremely clean and brand new too.
