Before I even get to how amazingly healthy salmon is for you, I have to say that it is perhaps the single most versatile fish on the planet. It can be served in a traditional recipe for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Admittedly smoked salmon (lox) and bagels for breakfast, a salmon salad for lunch, and lemon-pouched salmon for dinner would get anyone tired of salmon, yet it still demonstrates what an amazing fish we have in salmon: standard American fare at every meal!
In any form, salmon packs a wallop of muscle-building protein, as well as essential omega-3 fish oils. Omega oils have been touted as critical for heart health, health of the joints, and as an anti-inflammatory and immune system booster. Salmon is also rich in the B-vitamins, in particular Vitamin B12.
If you’re a sushi fan, salmon is an absolute staple that you don’t have to feel guilty about endangering. Alaskan salmon is one of the most abundant and renewable, yet popularly consumed, fish on the planet.
