How to Make the Most of Salmon

Why Should We Eat Salmon?

Eating salmon is important for various reasons as it has such a high nutrient density. Not only is salmon an excellent source of high-quality protein, it also has essential omega-3 fatty acids, alongside various vitamins and minerals which are renowned to have numerous health benefits, including supporting heart health, reducing inflammation, and promoting brain function. Salmon is also a good source of vitamin D, which is crucial for bone health, immune system function, and overall well-being. Including salmon in your diet could help lower the risk of chronic diseases, support cognitive function, and contribute to overall health and well-being. Salmon can be enjoyed as part of a balanced pescatarian or flexitarian diet or a good alternative to meat meals for those of you who are keen on high protein recipes.
