Salmon is one of my favorite fish to cook. It’s not only good for us, but it’s really rather versatile. In fact, salmon is actually one of the most nutritious fish to add to your diet. Salmon is filled with omega-3s, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, iron, zinc, niacin, and more. Just make sure you are buying it from someplace you trust, that’s why I always get my seafood, especially salmon, from Anderson Seafoods. The quality is what you would find in five-star restaurants…maybe even better!
