Salmon is a highly nutritious oily fish; rich in proteins, omega-3 fatty acids (the good fats), and vitamin D. Despite it is rich in the good fats; it’s also a source of cholesterol.
Salmon is consumed raw (in sushi and sashimi) and is used as a basic ingredient in several tasteful dishes, sandwiches, salads, omelets, mousses, quiches and pasta dishes.
Alert: For all pregnant women, it’s very important to know that despite fish is highly nutritious; it might contain some unhealthy toxic substances, mainly mercury. Mercury, coming from sea water contamination, can accumulate and sit within the fish meat, specifically that large in size fish; thus if eaten can pass through the placenta to the infant causing a disruption in the nervous and brain development.

Have a look at this delicious Tagilatelle Creamy Salmon Dish. I’ve tasted it at “La Estancia”, an Argentinian steakhouse in Beirut, despite it is famously known for its freshly prepared Argentinian meats, this tasteful salmon is not to be missed.
