Salmon is not only delicious, but is low in calories and saturated fat as compared meat. In addition to possessing very high quality protein, salmon also contains a type of beneficial essential oil, known as omega-3 fatty acids, which research has shown to protect the heart and reduce inflammation. But the health benefits of salmon don’t stop there. Salmon is also a great source of essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins B6, B12, niacin, selenium, phosphorus, and magnesium. When this wonder food is combined with a healthy side dish, such as asparagus cashew wild rice pilaf, a deliciously dynamic duo creates a synergism of flavor and texture.
