Salmon is one of America's most popular fish choices, thanks in part to its rich, buttery flavor. You can opt for a handful of different Pacific salmon, including:

  • Sockeye
  • Pink
  • Coho
  • King (Chinook)

Many of these kinds come from the wild.

Atlantic salmon is also an option. The U.S. prohibits fishing for it, so the ones you'll find in American supermarkets are raised on farms. 

Speaking about the nutritional value, a serving of salmon (3 to 4 ounces) is about 200 calories. It's rich in saturated fat and a good source of protein. Salmon is also one of the best vitamin B12, D, and potassium sources. And that's a fine thing for your health! Eating salmon gives you a lot of benefits. These are:

  • A heart health support
  • Brain function support
  • Maintaining healthy aging
  • Anti-inflammatory property
  • Antioxidant property

Well, the advantages are a lot!
