Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable. February is Heart Health month to inspire people to make heart-healthy choices, like eating well. This delicious, heart-healthy recipe with omega-3-packed salmon comes courtesy of Freeletics and its Freeletics Nutrition app.
- 1/4 lb. salmon fillet (fresh or frozen)
- 3/4 ounce dried seaweed salad or wakame
- 1 small romaine lettuce
- 2 spring onions

- 1/2 orange (zest and juice)
- 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
- 1/2 clove garlic
- 1-inch piece fresh ginger
- 2 teaspoons roasted sesame oil
