Serve this flavorful salmon dish with the Balsamic Roasted Beets and a large garden vegetable salad. Always remember to purchase wild salmon from the Pacific coast—preferably from Alaska. Avoid consuming farmed salmon as it is a dangerous risk to your health. Research shows that most farmed salmon contains chemicals that damage mitochondrial function in the body, which changes how you process blood sugar, leading to an increased risk for diabetes.

¼ cups balsamic vinegar
¼ cups extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic peeled
1 teaspoons sea salt
