The following Sinfully Delicious Baked Salmon recipe is packed with heart-healthy essential fatty acids and offers a light flavor that pairs well with the Green with Envy Tossed Salad and a side dish of potatoes. Feel free to grill the salmon, if desired. Just be certain to use a grill basket to avoid sticking or wrap in aluminum foil before placing on a hot grill.
