Better Homes and Gardens Salmon provides a tender, flaky meat with rich flavor. It is a fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, making this a heart-healthy main dish. Jalapeno peppers are combined with the tomatoes and cilantro to spice up the topping that is served on the salmon. The fish is done if it flakes easily when tested with a fork.

24 oz. salmon fillets, about 1 inch thick
