Just the right portion size; Salmon is high in protein and fiber. Salmon's reputation as a healthy food is largely based on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content. It is normal for 4 ounces of salmon to contain at least 2 grams of omega-3 fats - more than the average U.S. adult gets from all food over the course of several days. This omega-3 fat comes in two forms: EPA and DHA. However, salmon is also rich in other properties, such as vitamin D and selenium, each of which have their own powerful health benefits.
