One of my favorite diabetic fish recipes!

Salmon Facts

1. Salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which ease inflammation. In fact, salmon has six times the amount found in other seafood such as shrimp,founder, and mahi mahi.

2. If salmon is too fishy for you, mellow it down by poaching it in white wine, chicken stock, lemon zest, and dill or fennel!
