Pan-Seared Salmon with Dairy-Free Creamy Dill Dressing

During the winter, a great way to optimize your mood is by increasing your dietary omega-3 fatty acid content.

A recent review stated that dietary intake of Omega-3 Fatty acids can modulate neurobiological processes involved in the pathophysiology of anxiety and depression by improving function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, regulating the endocannabinoid system, and through direct free fatty acid receptors found in the brain(1). Wild Alaska or Sockeye Salmon are nutritious, low-toxicity seafood options rich in omega-3 fatty acids and protein. They are also delicious, filling, and satisfying! This dairy-free creamy dressing features flavours like chives and dill to delight your tastebuds on a cool winter’s night!
