Recipe Instructions: Salmon

Salmon is one of the healthiest foods worldwide. Salmon is considered a superfood because it is high in protein, omega-3 fats, and vitamin D, according to the USDA.

For optimal heart health and potential stroke prevention, the American Heart Association suggests eating fish at least twice weekly, preferably fatty seafood like salmon. N

Not only is salmon a versatile and easy-to-cook protein, but it also goes well with a wide range of dishes, including salads, eggs, and even fish tacos! Also, don't forget that salmon,

whether fresh or frozen, can be a nutritious complement to your meals. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) advises against ever washing fish.

 saying that doing so does not eliminate pollutants and may actually transmit foodborne germs to your kitchen surfaces. Many individuals wash fish before cooking it, assuming that this will assist.

It might be overwhelming to try to narrow down the many varieties of salmon to the healthiest selection when perusing the frozen food aisle or the fish counter. 

 The most sustainable and environmentally friendly options for salmon, according to the Environmental Defense Fund, include wild Atlantic salmon, wild Alaskan salmon,

 farmed salmon raised inside in circulation tanks, and canned salmon. These options also include the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids and the lowest levels of mercury.

Remember that the thickness of the incision determines the cooking time for salmon. When the fish reaches the proper temperature—145 degrees Fahrenheit, as stated on FoodSafety

gov—you can use a food thermometer to find out. To prevent drying out, keep a close eye on the salmon while it cooks and take it off the heat immediately after it flakes.
