What Is Salmon?
Salmon is a healthy food due to the fish’s high protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D content. Salmon also contains cholesterol which many people are on low-fat diets for fear of their heart health and weight gain.
Salmons natural orange colour comes from carotenoid pigments in its flesh and krill or other tiny shellfish they eat before being caught by fishermen worldwide.
There are several ways you can prepare salmon, and its hot or cold smoke is one of the most popular.
The term “lox” can refer either to a traditional style of preparing fresh salmon by smoking the flesh over smoky wood chips (hot) or to more modern gravlax, which involves curing the fish in a salt solution before slicing it thinly.
There are also saltless canned options you may choose, made up of only skin and bones, which contributes to your calcium intake!
