Is the holiday season making you crazy? This recipe features ingredients that can help you find a sense of calm amid all the busyness!

Chia-Crusted Salmon

Both salmon and chia seeds provide omega-3 fatty acids, which are required for proper nervous-system functioning.

1/4 cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth

1 onion, chopped

1/2 cup finely chopped dill

4 tbsp chia seeds

4 tbsp yellow mustard seeds

4 salmon fillets

  1. Preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, combine the broth, onion and dill, and set aside. In another small bowl, combine the chia seeds and mustard seeds, and set aside.
  2. Place the salmon on a baking sheet, skin side down, and broil for 5 minutes, 6 inches from the heat source. Remove the salmon and pour the broth mixture evenly over the fillets.
  3. Broil for 5 minutes. Remove and coat the fillets with the seed mixture, pressing the seeds into each fillet. Return to the top shelf and broil for 5–10 minutes, or until the fish is opaque.
