Before we set off on our cooking journey, we want to explain why the salmon is a god-like creature in terms of health benefits.
The skin of a salmon is full of collagen which is a protein that improves and preserves the flexibility of bones, skin, joints, nails, and hair! Of all the known collagens, marine collagen has the highest absorption rate, so that’s great. As most people know (from dozens of television adverts) salmon is absolutely packed with Omega 3 which helps the blood flow to our brains and may help protect you against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Doctors and scientists (like the American Heart Association) have been recommending that we eat salmon for a long time now as its unsaturated fatty acids can lessen the inflammation associated with strokes and heart disease. Salmon is also perfect for your post-exercise meal and eating a four to six-ounce piece of salmon once a week (at least) will help your health issues.
All this health stuff is all fair and well but ultimately the best reason to eat salmon is that it’s bloody delicious!
Let’s have a jolly look at the best way to cook the perfect piece of salmon, regardless of whether it’s baked, roasted, or pan-fried it’s a great meal and we are going to tell you the best way to crisp the skin and five diverse ways to cook this adaptable fish.
