I just love salmon: smoke it, steam it, grill it or sushi it, but hand it over. It is a very good source of omega 3 which we all know we need more of. So regard it as doctor’s orders: Eat this twice a week. You will be feeling better in no time.
It has become very affordable these days, perhaps due to the wonders of freezing technology. So plan to get some salmon on your menu.
