Foods With Omega-3s: 5 Nutrient-Rich Dishes

What are the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids? They might help prevent heart disease, for one—so it’s worth it to eat up.

6 ounces of salmon has about 3.5 grams (3500 milligrams) of EPA and DHA

Among oily, cold-water fish, salmon’s an easy choice to up your intake of omega-3s—and research suggests consuming oily fish twice a week for good heart health. So wrap a 6-ounce salmon filet and some asparagus spears in parchment paper; top it with salt, pepper, lemon slices, a sprig or two of thyme and a ligh drizzle of olive oil; and bake that sucker at 400°F for about 20 minutes. There you have it. You’ve got an easy, spruced up meal. (You can also try this MF recipe for 20-Minute Baked Salmon.)
