Alaskan Salmon is a wonderful fish and so good for you, rich in omega 3 fatty acids, and full of flavor. It is an excellent source of phosphorous, niacin and vitamins B6 and B12, a good source of thiamin and niacin. It contains 1825 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per 3 oz serving.
This is a very simple dish and really brings out the taste of the fish
