Try this very flavorful way of eating salmon. Not only is it flavorful, but it is a fun finger food. Salmon is a wonderful go to for protein. Each salmon cup provides 8 grams of protein. Salmon is a nutritious food that contains protein, vitamins, and healthy fats. Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are heart-healthy and can help reduce inflammation and support brain health. Salmon and other types of fatty fish offer an array of bone-boosting nutrients. Salmon also contains selenium and studies have shown that selenium intake may be necessary for bone health.
