Salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12) but it is their content of omega-3 fatty acids that receives the most attention. The other ingredient that stands out is ginger which is a great for relieving digestive problems.
In this episode of Happy Belly, dietitian and author Frances Largeman Roth demonstrates how to make a simple but flavorful dinner: Ginger salmon with fingerling potatoes. IBS sufferers often have trouble digesting raw (and sometimes cooked) vegetables, but potatoes are pretty easy on the stomach. Be sure to use fresh ginger for this recipe – the bottled variety just doesn’t measure up!
