Salmon is one of the best types of fish to eat. Nutritionally dense, it’s packed with protein, vitamins and minerals. Most notably it is high in omega-3 fatty acids which the body cannot make itself. The only way to get Omega 3 fatty acids is through your diet which is important as they contribute to healthy brain functions, heart, eye and joint health.

Hot and straight from the oven or hours later and cold, this baked sesame soy salmon recipe is one of our favorite ways to enjoy this nutrient packed fish.
