BROILED SALMON WITH SWEET PEPPER – MEAL IN A JAR
Do you love salmon? Me, I am a big fan of this seafood. Salmon is the first fish that I used to train my husband. My husband denied to eat seafood for 35 years of his life, until we met each other and I started training him to eat seafood. Now he is a big fan of fishes, shrimp, crab legs, lobster, oyster and you name it. Seafood is rich in protein, less fat, full of DHA, iron, zinc, Omega 3 and many more. So, consuming seafood is a heathy way to treat your body without working out.
