Keto Pesto Salmon
Arthur Andrew Medical
This recipe for wild caught salmon with a verdant green organic pesto is inspired by the Mediterranean diet. Filled with seafood, nuts & olive oil, the Mediterranean diet holds the top spot for the heart-healthiest eating style, according to WHO & Mayo Clinic. Wild caught salmon is higher in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids than farmed salmon, which also contains pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids.
