Ten Top Reasons for Eating Fresh Salmon

10.   Salmon’s availability is assured!  You can find fresh salmon whenever you want it. You can buy salmon any day of the year.  For the best fresh salmon, order on line and get it overnight anywhere in the U.S. 

9.    Great recipes for salmon abound.  Salmon’s taste and cooking properties make it popular with chefs across the globe.  For example, you can go Asian and grill some fresh salmon steaks with teriyaki.  Or you may opt to serve something more tropical, like baked salmon fillets with a mango chili salsa.  For ideas from appetizers to main dishes and soups, see the Salmon Recipe Collection by Lynn Salmon (yup, that’s her name!). 

8    Salmon is so adaptable!  You can use various cooking methods for your salmon, which you can cook whole, as steaks, or as fillets.  Grill it, bake it, flake it, or kebab it.  You can buy salmon already prepared or do it yourself just the way you like it.

7.    Salmon is great value for the money.  Compared to beef or pork, salmon, as with other fish, offer incredible food value per dollar.  Waste is minimal (as is clean up, which is another benefit!).

6.    Salmon is beautiful!  The rosy pink hues of salmon stimulate the eye and the appetite.  When you want to make a gorgeous presentation, accentuate the gorgeous color of the salmon by choosing side dishes and plates that create a festival of colors.

5.  Salmon is good for you.  Of course you already knew this!  When you eat salmon, you are enjoying a delicious source of proteins, vitamins, and minerals.  (And you don’t need to tell the kids!)

4.  Salmon can help you think better. One of the most noted benefits of salmon is its highly unsaturated oils called omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.  Among the health benefits of a diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids are improved ability to concentrate.
3.  Salmon can help you feel better.  The Omega 3s have also been shown to help relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.
2.  Salmon might even help you live longer.  Those Omega 3 fats are thought to help keep the heart healthy by lowering the likelihood of blood clots and improve blood flow.  It’s not surprising so many physicians recommend that we eat more fish!
1.         Salmon tastes terrific!  So many times the best tasting foods are the ones we should avoid--but not in the case of salmon!  You can enjoy your fresh salmon totally guilt free.  Plus you can serve salmon knowing that everyone will love it.  So relax and enjoy your salmon!
