“Beat the heat, eat raw salmon”–Paul Ebeling
Salmon is a heart-healthy fish and a source of many nutrients, most notably the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), vitamin B12, and selenium
Salmon fans fans have refined tastes. Some might swear by a hearty meal of grilled salmon steak with nutrient-dense greens, while others will only eat it raw. All options are certifiably delicious, here are my favorites, as follow:
While you might enjoy a bit of raw salmon from time to time, ensure you are consuming it only from high-quality eateries with impeccable food standards. Raw salmon has the same nutrient profile as cooked salmon. However, consuming raw or undercooked fish increases your risk of food-borne illness.
While some people are not huge fans of tucking into the silvery salmon skin, it is worth eating if you are hoping to increase your nutrient consumption. Salmon skin contains the same vitamins and minerals as in salmon flesh. Because of the unique texture of the salmon skin, it is usually a personal preference whether or not to eat it.
While you might not always be able to taste the difference between salmon from a farm and open seas, according to the USDA, farmed salmon tends to be higher in fat and vitamin D when compared with wild-caught salmon.
According to the USDA, a three-ounce serving of wild, raw salmon contains 121 calories, 16.8 grams of protein, and 5.39 grams of fat, making it a filling food with hearth-healthy fats.
Pair with full-bodied white wines like oak-aged Chardonnay, Viognier, Marsanne, White Rioja, White Burgundy, and White Pinot Noir.
