Chicken, beef, and eggs are on every lifter’s menu, but fish isn’t as popular. The likely reason is that most people don’t know how to cook it and fear the smell it will emit when they do. Master this recipe and you’ll make fish (well, salmon at least) a staple in your diet forevermore.
At first glance, this meal may look like a gut bomb because it’s packed with fat. But consider the type of fat: Salmon is loaded with omega-3s (and complete protein), while pecans offer monounsaturated fats. Coconut oil, while a saturated fat, is metabolized fast. Its medium-chain triglycerides are converted to energy in the liver while providing antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-viral properties. Combined with antioxidant-rich cinnamon, it makes a fragrant dinner with an almost sweet taste. And there’s nothing fishy about that.
