Halibut on a plate.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States. This recipe is great for summer grilling and helps to provide heart-healthy nutrients.
Grilling with a cedar plank creates a smoky flavor and keeps the fish moist. You can usually purchase a cedar plank at your local grocery store starting in the late spring and throughout the summer.
Halibut has omega-3 fatty acids, a heart-healthy fat that supports the fight against cardiovascular disease. Rich in essential nutrients, particularly magnesium, eating halibuts improve blood flow and distribution of nutrients to the entire body.
Additionally, halibuts are extremely beneficial in lowering homocysteine levels in the body, which are known to cause arterial damage. A moderate consumption of this freshwater fish reduces chances of arteriosclerosis.
