Eating salmon is a great way to meet the daily protein requirement. This fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Other sources include cold-water fatty fish, such as mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, which means the body cannot produce this on its own. This polyunsaturated fat also provides benefits for the heart, brain, and bone health. Although it is rare, eating food rich in essential fatty acids is important to avoid deficiency.
Studies show that this is linked to lower cardiac-related deaths among healthy individuals and those with pre-existing heart conditions. There is also evidence of a decrease in liver fat content for individuals who consume Omega 3 compared to those who don’t. It is important to add variety to the diet to fully achieve the daily nutrient needs of the individual. A piece of salmon steak usually weighs between four or six ounces. It is recommended by the USDA to consume about 8-12 ounces of a variety of seafood per week. This Salmon with Honey Ginger Garlic Glaze recipe suggests a healthy portion (150g / 5oz) of salmon.
