Delicious, easy to make, and packed with eye-healthy nutrients? Meet your new go-to fish dish


Roasted salmon with cherry tomato salad

Fess up: You know you don't eat enough fish. Popcorn shrimp and fried fish tacos don't count! We're talking about the kind of cold-water fish like salmon that can help keep your eyes (and the rest of you) healthy. 

One serving of salmon provides plenty of vitamin D, a nutrient that has been shown to ward off dry eye syndrome. This dish also delivers those inflammation-slaying omega-3 fatty acids you've heard so much about. Research suggests that eating fish at least twice a week can lower your chances of developing age-related macular degeneration by more than a third. 

When you put it that way, salmon has never looked so good.
