As we age, we all become afraid of the dreaded word ALZHEIMER. The biggest question is how do we keep our brains sharp.  Here are a couple of ways you can do that:

  1. Minimize trans-fat. This can be achieved by not frying your food.
  2. Minimize saturated fat intake.  Fatty meats and full-fat dairy products contain high levels of saturated fat.
  3. Eat low mercury fish at least twice a week.  Consider eating wild salmon and sardines.
  4. Have at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily.


Jerk is a traditional way of preparing BBQ in Jamaica.  I use Walkerswood traditional Jamaican Jerk Seasoning.  Use this seasoning sparingly is hot, spicy, and GOOOOOD.  This dish presents well; place on a platter and surround the fish with fresh fruit and vegetable slices.  I recommend pineapple, green and black large seedless grapes cut in half, mango, lime, papaya, bell pepper, and purple onions.

3 pounds salmon fillet, skinless, 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning, 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with olive oil rub the jerk seasoning on both sides. Put the salmon pieces in a shallow glass pan.  Cover with foil and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.  Remove from the refrigerator and allow the fish to reach room temperature.  Bake at 350 degrees until the fish flakes easily with a fork, which takes 20-23 minutes. For the last 5 minutes, turn the temperature to broil to darken and crisp the fish.
