Smoked salmon

Browse By

Fresh salmon filets get plenty of homage for their versatility and healthy fats, but smoked salmon is an even easier route to healthy meals.

Because it’s already cooked, it arrives ready for insertion into wraps (try a salmon-kale combo), salads, and pastas. Smoked salmon pairs especially well with the flavors of lemon, dill, smoky paprika, or cream cheese UFABET

Save it for later

Since smoked salmon typically comes in smaller packages, you may not have leftovers to save. If you do, though, you can keep it in a sealed container in the fridge for 1 week (or 1 month in the freezer).

Health benefits

Just like fresh salmon, smoked salmon contains plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, known for their benefits for heart and brain health. It’s also got vitamins A and E, antioxidants that work to combat inflammation. Just beware its high sodium content of 600-1,200 milligrams per 100-gram serving.

 Smoking salmon began during World War II in the 19th century on the west coast of the United States. At that time there were no refrigerators. Food preservation therefore requires curing, fermentation, and drying to stop bacteria from destroying fish meat. Freshly caught salmonใ It is fermented with salt and then smoked at a high temperature. This is a method of preserving food for fish to last longer. Used for transporting long distances. For Native Americans, it was believed that if salmon were handled incorrectly, The Dry Ocean Spirit will drive all salmon away from that area. They may not have food for the next day.’ So salmon was highly respected at that time.
