Salmon is an excellent source of high quality protein and the heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. We all need omega-3 fatty acids to feed our brains. Salmon is one of the best fish choices to get protein and healthy fat from, since it is low in mercury. I try to include at least one meal of salmon every week in our family diet.
