What’s your version of healthy cooking? 
It all starts with your cooking oil. 
Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, is the heart-healthy, versatile, and value for money cooking oil.  
“Better for the Heart and Better for the Budget.”
To give you a fact, Canola Oil is one of the healthiest cooking oils because of its LOW saturated fat (BAD FAT) and high monounsaturated fat (GOOD FAT) content. Jolly Canola Oil has omega 3 and 6, which are good for the heart. It has a pale golden color, light texture, and neutral taste so you can use it for any dish. Jolly Canola Oil also has a high smoking point which makes it ideal for frying.
Crispy Binagoongan
Donita Rose, host of Basta Everyday Happy, showcased heart-healthy recipes using Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil through the month of December. Filipino favorites like Beef Stew, Crispy Binagoongan, Beef Caldereta and a lot more were featured. Now, I’ll share with you one of her recipes called Hearty Healthy Salmon

Hearty Healthy Salmon

For the Salmon:
2 center-cut salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
¼ cup finely chopped cilanto
2 Tbsp Jolly Canola oil
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Salsa:
1 medium red onion
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
3 pcs medium tomatoes
2 firm-ripe avocados
1 pc ripe mango
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, or to taste

1. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow bowl. Toss well with lemon juice, cilantro, Jolly Canola oil, and pepper. Let rest for 15 minutes.

2. Cook the salmon, skinside down in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan and carefully lifting the salmon with a spatula to loosen it from the pan.

3. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover the pan and cook until the salmon is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more. The skin should be crisp and the flesh medium rare.

4. To make the salsa: Finely chop onion and mince garlic. In a bowl toss onion and garlic with cilantro.

5. Chop tomatoes and mango, add to onion mixture, tossing to combine.

6. Peel and pit avocados and cut into 3/4-inch pieces. Add avocados, lime juice, and pepper to taste. Spoon over cooked salmon.
