The Lowdown on Salmon

Given all the fish in the sea, why salmon? Call me biased, but having had salmon for various dinners growing up, I think salmon is one of the most delicious, versatile, and nutritious fish out there! Packed with healthy omega 3’s, protein, and lots of other vitamins, salmon is an excellent protein choice for any meals!

As with buying any cuts of meat, one tip about buying salmon is to buy good quality salmon! Frozen or fresh, buying quality salmon makes a HUGE difference and will 100% elevate the overall taste of your meal!

One of our favorite places to buy sustainable seafood is through the Thrive Market Meat & Seafood Program! Not only do they have quality cuts, we also love that they offer students, teachers, veterans, and low-income families a free membership! But if you don’t fall in that category, you can still get $20 in shopping credit with this link! At just $5-$10 per month, being a Thrive Market member definitely makes our dollars stretch a bit further and allows us to have more amazing dinners!
