Healthy Benefits
Salmon is high in protein and is a rich source of vitamins A and the B-group vitamins.  Salmon is a good source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, which lowers the risk of heart disease. Perhaps, most important, salmon contains Omega-3 oil, which decreases the risk of coronary heart disease and certain cancers


Shopping Tip
At the supermarket, ask the fish counter to cut 2 pieces of salmon, about 5 ounces each.
