Cajun Salmon with Peach Salsa

This peach salsa pairs perfectly with this Cajun salmon for a delicious summery recipe. We recommend serving it over a salad or with grilled veggies and even some rice like a burrito bowl. The salsa will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days so you can enjoy the leftovers with some tortilla chips or cucumber slices.

Salmon is an excellent source of healthy fats, especially DHA and EPA, two types of Omega 3 fatty acids that are vital for brain health.
