Great source of the essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids with its EPA and DHA, acids that naturally occur in oily fish : eicosapentanoic acid (EPA), docosahexanoic acid (DHA).
As they cannot be produced by the body, they need to be acquired from a diet. You get 2.6 grams of them for every 100-gram serving of this fish.
Way better option than fish oil capsule supplements, not to mention all natural.
This superfish is also an excellent source of protein. High-quality protein of at least 20-30g a day is needed by the body to be able to:
- protect the health of the bones
- maintain muscle mass (especially during weight loss and aging processes)
- heal after an injury
Rich in B vitamins. This bunch of vitamins are essential for the optimal function of the brain and nervous system. They are also responsible in the conversion of food to energy, the repair of DNA and its creation, as well as reducing inflammation (that can lead to heart disease).
With more than the equivalent in banana, Salmon is also a good source of Potassium. This mineral helps control blood pressure and prevent surplus of water retention. Also reduces risk of stroke.
It is also rich in trace mineral called, Selenium which basically helps protect bone health, improve thyroid function and reduce risk of cancer. A very good source to increase blood levels of Selenium in the body.
It has the antioxidant Astaxanthin, responsible for its pigment coloring. This antioxidant helps in the general well-being of your skin health (makes you look younger, too). It also aids in potentially lowering the risk of heart disease by reducing the bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing the good one (HDL).

Festive Roasted Salmon in Butter
900 grams to 1.1 kg Salmon Whole Fillet Skin On
3 tbsp mixed aromatic herbs for fish (or alternatively minced dill or parsley)
4 tbsp (½ stick) butter
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Choose an oven-safe skillet that will perfectly fit your salmon. A skillet is or a well seasoned cast iron pan are good choices as it will give a nice texture to the roasted fish. Alternatively, you can use a regular baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Place butter and half of the herbs in 475°F preheated oven, until butter begins to sizzle.
Season salmon with salt and pepper. Add the salmon to the pan, with skin on the top. Roast for 4 minutes. Take out of the oven and peel the skin away. The skin should peel right off. If not, try to cook it a couple of minutes longer. You can choose to leave the skin on, if you prefer.
Roast for another 3 to 5 minutes. The timing will depend on how well done you would like your salmon to be. For every half-inch of salmon, roast 4 to 6 minutes. At 4 minutes, salmon will still be a touch rare, 6 minutes will thoroughly cook it. You know that it is done when it flakes easily. With a tiny portion of the fish along the thickest part, try to pry it gently with a fork. When it flakes easily, it’s ready.
Transfer to a nice serving dish with some more herbs and round slices of lemon.
Serve and enjoy!
