30 Easy Salmon Recipes

 If you want to improve your brain health, salmon is an excellent source of healthy fats (Omega-3 fatty acids). DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), a type of Omega-3 that can be found in salmon can significantly improve the brain's cognitive function. To name a few of its benefits, eating salmon regularly fights inflammation, lowers the risk of heart disease, and improves blood circulation (Healthline).

  But how much salmon should we have or how do we consume Omega-3? Science-based articles suggest that we should take about 250-500 mg of DHA plus EPA from fish (WHO). However, it is important to note that we can also take supplements and there are plant-based sources of Omega-3 (chia seeds, flax seeds, Brussel sprouts, and hemp seeds). As always too much consumption can also be detrimental to our health (Healthline). Likewise, we also need to consider the source. Wild-caught salmon can be expensive but it does hold the highest nutrients.
