Here’s the thing about salmon: It doesn’t take a lot of effort to make it delicious. In fact, it doesn’t take a lot of effort to make it at all.
Rich in healthy omega-3s, sustainably raised salmon appears in virtually every restaurant and supermarket across the country – and for good reason. Salmon is as tasty as it is delicious.
Salmon: The Easiest to Prepare Protein
Just pop it on the grill, in the oven, or on a skillet. A few minutes later, and you’ll be diving into a chef-approved meal.
“A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) portion of farmed salmon has 2.3 grams of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids,” according to wellness website, Healthline. “Unlike most other fats, omega-3 fats are considered “essential,” meaning you must get them from your diet since your body can’t create them.”
Paleo and keto friendly, gluten-free, and low-carb, salmon is one of the healthiest foods to eat. It’s loaded with good-for-you fat – yes, it exists! – as well as protein, vital micronutrients, such as calcium, iron, selenium, iodine (only found in seafood) and an array of B vitamins.
The fatty fish is flavorful on its own, though it can be complemented by a variety of spices as well. We love this Cuban-inspired recipe, as well as this simple gluten-free version with pine nuts and pumpkin seeds.
