Poached Salmon with Cucumber Sauce   
Daily Dose
This poached salmon dish is an easy way to boost your heart health, thanks to loads of omega-3 fatty acids, and satisfy your taste buds. Additionally, those omega-3s help nerve cells communicate with each other, which is an essential step in maintaining good mental health. And with a light, yogurt-based cucumber sauce, this makes a special meal for any occasion.
