Herbed Lemon Salmon
Delicious and simple, this baked salmon recipe is perfect for any occasion. The lemon zest and juice give it a delightful flavor - perfect for cancer patients with dry mouth from radiation treatment. Wild salmon is rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and protein; both important nutrients for cancer patients and survivors. For a healthy, balanced meal, pair with roasted vegetables and a whole grain such as quinoa or brown rice.
