salmon buddha bowl

Salmon has many health benefits, especially on the brain, thanks to its high concentration of Omega 3 Fatty acid. It can help reduce cerebral inflammation, increase cognitive capabilities, and much more. I am not an expert in this but I can say that I have seen its effect on a person close to me. For that reason, this recipe is very close to my heart. It is simple and easy to put together. It is filled with protein, healthy fat, and it is low in sugar.
As per the sauce, I had some fresh cilantro in my fridge so I thought something refreshing on the salmon might be good. It turned out to be delicious.
