Salmon, if you didn’t know, is very good for you because of its excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals  like potassium, selenium and vitamin B12. It is also rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and decrease risk factors for disease.
