Health Benefits of Salmon


Salmon has earned its research reputation as a health-supportive food based largely on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content. It has one of the best sources for omega-3 fatty acid.

Smoked salmon is popular and in some cases it is considered a delicacy.  In Jewish cuisine smoked salmon is called lox and is usually eaten on a bagel with cream cheese. In North America, smoked salmon is often sliced very thinly and served on bread with cream cheese or with sliced red onion, lemon and capers. Slices of smoked salmon are a popular appetizer in Europe, usually served with some kind of bread. Smoked salmon is sometimes used in sushi, though not widely used in Japan it is used in North American sushi bars, for example in a "Philadelphia Roll"
