Brainfood in its highest form is the tender salmon, because its abundant omega-3 fatty acids improve the ability to concentrate and memory. In addition, these essential fatty acids offer protection against vasoconstriction and high cholesterol levels.

A fresh leaf salad and baked potatoes go well with this dish. If you are on a low carb diet, you can cook some spinach or pan-fried vegetables with salmon and sauce.
