Salmon Cakes Recipe: Healthy And High In Protein

Consuming just six ounces of fish each week reduces one’s risk of cardiovascular disease by more than one-third, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. The American Heart Association echoes these sentiments advising individuals to eat fish twice a week to reap the benefits of lowering one’s heart rate, blood pressure and improving one’s blood vessel function.

Salmon is a great choice when it comes to fish! It’s loaded with Omega-3 Fatty Acids, which benefits cardiovascular health and brain function. Salmon is a excellent source of protein and lower in saturated fat than red meat, making it a heart healthy fish. Consider swapping out burger patties one night and give this tasty salmon cakes recipe a try.
