We’ve all heard about the benefits of salmon and of how easy this ingredient is to cook. But do you really know how good this seafood is to your health and to your system? Well, allow me to be your guide! 

Salmon is crucial for your immunity. The combo of omega-3, selenium as well as vitamins A and D are key for improving the immunity system, both in the short and long term. These can reduce your risk of chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes and cognitive decline. Salmon is also known for being a great source of lean protein, a great boost for your brain, your “heart helper”, your key for strong bones, your anti-inflammatory diet staple or even your great post-workout.

So how do you cook your salmon?
