Salmon is basically a health-conscious, weight-conscious, low-carb dieter’s dream. It is naturally free from carbohydrates and is high in protein, with about 22 grams in a 4-ounce serving. Its real claim to fame, though, is its fat content. It is one of the best-known sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. All that fat bumps up the calorie content of salmon (it’s about 40% higher in calories per serving than chicken, for example), but those calories are worth it in terms of satiety heart-healthy benefits from the omega-3 fats.
The creamy avocado pesto provides the creaminess to contrast with the crispiness of the salmon, and it offers a boost of flavor. You can substitute hemp seeds or pine nuts for walnuts, and keep the leftovers in the fridge for up to five days in an airtight container. If you like, you can substitute store-bought pesto and add ripe avocado to the dish.
Serve this recipe on its own, with a side salad, or with steamed, grilled, or roasted asparagus or other vegetables.
