Is Salmon Good For You?

Packed with tons of omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is an excellent, healthy choice to serve your family. I taught my kids early on that salmon was good for their brains and they love when I make it since they feel like they’re getting smarter with every bite!

Every Sunday when I go to the farmers’ market with my family, without fail one of our first stops is to visit Marilyn and Eileen (who we long ago dubbed “the Fish Ladies”) to see their gorgeous faces and their equally gorgeous, just-out-of-the-sea catch. It’s not often that one sees two such beautiful and lovely women hauling around and carving up huge sides of fish, but these two are total originals.

With what I bring home from the Fish Ladies I have made everything from Miso Scallops, to Fish in Parchment Paper but I love their salmon so much! Since Sunday should be a day of rest (but rarely is, sadly) I try to make dinner as easy as can be. A simple piece of broiled salmon (served with a fresh fruit salad or Air Fryer Baby Potatoes always fits the bill.

  1. Looks great!! Really what to try I currently have frozen salmon in the freezer. Will this work as well and how long should I thaw? Thank you!

  2. Love salmon. It’s also good poached with a watercress sauce. Or just watercress, lemon and mayo in a sandwich.

  3. Hi, Just wondering why is a Salmon video under The Vegetarian category? As a vegetarian I would never eat fish…

  4. Gorgeous pictures! I am definitely going to try your salmon method… in my toaster oven!! Brilliant!
