Dr. Sinatra's Simple Wild Salmon; Salmon-Stuffed Tomatoes

We have two recipes today… one for canned Wild Red Sockeye, and a simple sauté designed for any fresh-frozen wild Salmon.

The sauté recipe comes from Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra'sReverse Heart Disease Now, which is reviewed in this issue of “Vital Choices.”

Steve Sinatra is one of our favorite people… warm, generous, and unpretentious. His tasty recipe is appropriately heart-healthy and casual.

This makes the perfect quick meal for one or two… or more! Just adjust the amounts of herbs and garlic to taste. To reduce its bite, sauté the garlic lightly over low heat for a few minutes before using.

An accompanying salad makes a great combination.
