Grilled Salmon Caesar

Salmon is the most popular fish in America and for good reason. It is flavorful, easy to cook, and high in omega-3 fatty acids, one of the only essential fats your body needs. Omega-3s have been found to be beneficial to brain and heart health, so this meal is a great way to start the week.
