Grilled Salmon Skewers
Salmon is rich in protein as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which help protect the heart and blood vessels and may help lower cholesterol levels.
This dish contains virtually no carbohydrates, so unless you're on a low-carb diet, we recommend pairing it with a baked potato or whole wheat baguette to make it a whole meal. If you are watching your carbs, serve this with a simple side salad.
