Listed below is a delicious sea food recipe that can also be considered great “see” food as well. It contains a couple ingredients that not only taste great but help provide some significant benefits to helping you see clearly into the future.
The first of these ingredients is the salmon fillet, which is a great see food because it contains omega-3-fatty acids as it is a cold water fish. This is beneficial due to the fact that these fatty acids help reduce inflammation in the body and can help be a protective factor against eye conditions including dry eyes, cataracts and age related macular degeneration. In fact Omega-3-fatty acids have been shown to be therapeutic for dry eye syndrome. Increasing your consumption of Omega-3-fatty acids also has been shown to reduce your risk for other disease such as heart disease, high cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis and dementia! It’s great for your whole body!
The second item on this menu that provides protection for your eyes is the lemon juice. This is protective and works in conjunction with the salmon because it contains vitamin C, which is a water soluble antioxidant that can neither be produced nor stored in the body. These antioxidants are important in the body because they team up with the omega-3s to help protect against cataracts as well as age related macular degeneration. Together these two ingredients provide a one two punch to help maintain the health of your eyes and have you seeing clearly.

Mix marinade in an extra large zip lock bag. Add the salmon (remove all fine bones). Let sit 3 hours to overnight.
Remove salmon, bake at 425F for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the filet. (Parchment paper in pan makes for easy cleanup!)
