Just a quick post, since I just finished cooking this delicious salmon and wanted to share it with you...it's a piece of beautiful, wild Coho salmon.
Wild salmon should be a big part of a Paleo diet, and as some of you know, I've been following Robb Wolf's 30 Day Total Transformation, which includes a Paleoithic diet, a diet rich in wild fish and grass fed meats, fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds and healthy fats.
Eating wild salmon vs farmed salmon will give you more of the Omega Fatty acids, the essential fatty acids that all bodies need. To name a few benefits, the Omega 3 Fatty Acids are supposedly linked to lowering heart disease and stroke, and are said to have anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects on the body.
Lastly, the wild salmon is a superfood! It's a great source of protein, being made up of all essential amino acids (those amino acids that can not be made by the body and must be eaten), B vitamins, selenium, Vitamin E and Zinc. Here is the nutritional info for a 1/2lb piece, taken from the Fisherman's Direct website:
Information: One ½ lb. fillet of Coho Salmon has 289 calories, 42.8
grams of protein, 11.7 grams of fat, 2.4 grams of saturated fat and 91
milligrams of sodium.
If you can find wild salmon, of any type, please try it. It's a "health" food and tastes delicious as well!
