When Dianne Austin couldn't find natural-hair wigs, she created Coils to Locs, a medical wig resource for women of color who have lost their hair due to medical reasons and are searching for Afro kinky/curly wigs.
If you're looking to expand to your list of heart-healthy recipes, this salmon dish is a great addition.
Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can:
- Reduce inflammation throughout the body
- Lower blood pressure
- Decrease risk for stroke and heart failure
Paired with a tasty peach and avocado salsa, this dish is perfect for summer months.
- ¼ cup chopped red onion
- 1 lime, cut in half
- ¼ teaspoon plus ⅛ teaspoon salt, divided
- 1 pound salmon, cut evenly into 4 pieces
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- pinch of black pepper
- 1 ripe peach, chopped
- 1 roma tomato, diced
- ½ avocado, diced
- ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, minced (optional)
- In a medium bowl, combine the red onion, juice from half of the lime, and ¼ teaspoon of salt – set aside.
- Preheat broiler with oven rack 6-inches below the heat. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place salmon skin side down on foil-lined sheet. Squeeze juice from remaining lime half over the fish, then sprinkle with minced garlic, remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt, and black pepper.
- Broil for 4 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork (see note).
- While salmon is cooking, add the remaining ingredients to bowl with the onion.
- When salmon is fully cooked, remove from the oven and let rest 2 to 3 minutes.
- Serve each piece topped with ¼ of the peach and avocado salsa.
The salmon will need about 4 to 6 minutes per ½-inch of thickness. The salmon should be fully cooked when the entire piece appears light pink throughout and feels slightly firm to the touch (or its internal temperature reaches 145 degrees).
Yield: 4 servings
