We love to eat fresh Salmon. Here are some cooking tips as well as a nutritional breakdown of this incredible swimmer.
How to prepare it: Grilled, sautéed, steamed, sashimi...the list goes on. I prefer salmon steamed. Here is a quick and easy tip when steaming fish to make clean up a snap! Place a lettuce leaf under the fish when steaming. The skin will stick to the lettuce instead of the pan. Don't worry, the fish still cooks perfectly.
Why it's good for you:
It is low in calories and saturated fat, yet high in protein. It is also full of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Wild-caught cold water fish, like salmon, are higher in omega-3 fatty acids than warm water fish. The omegas in salmon have been known to help to reduce the risk of inflammation and help circulation. In addition to being an excellent source of omega-3s, salmon also contains vitamins and minerals such as, niacin, vitamin B12, phosphorus, magnesium and vitamin B6.
