Salmon Skewers


Salmon Skewers

I'm sure you've tried the classic chicken skewers at least once, but have you tried making salmon skewers? If not, I tell you that you must because they are delicious and very easy to make. Salmon skewers are an ideal alternative for a healthy lunch or even a healthy dinner. Salmon has multiple benefits for the body.
Salmon is an oily fish that is typically classified by the ocean in which it is found; in the Pacific, they are classified as part of the genus Oncorhynchus, and in the Atlantic, they are classified as part of the genus Salmo. Salmon is a powerful health food. Research indicates that eating fish, particularly omega-3-rich fish like salmon, may improve your health in a variety of ways.
Oily fish, such as salmon, are high in omega-3 fatty acids, a kind of polyunsaturated fat. Because the body cannot generate these fatty acids, we must incorporate them in our diet on a regular basis. Long chain omega-3 fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, are found naturally in oily fish. These fatty acids are thought to benefit heart health as well as skin, joints, and hormone balance. In addition to heart disease, scientists are now looking into how fish consumption may protect us from certain malignancies and illnesses such as asthma, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, and rheumatoid arthritis.
If you aren't receiving enough protein in your regular diet, you should start now. Protein is required for weight loss, muscle building, metabolism boost, and hunger reduction. A research published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism advocates consuming 20 to 30 grams of protein per meal to guarantee adequate protein intake.
Salmon's pink color is due to high quantities of astaxanthin, a beneficial antioxidant. This molecule has been associated to lowering the risk of heart disease by improving cholesterol and protecting the brain and neurological system when combined with omega-3 fatty acids.
Salmon is loaded with vitamin B12. To put it into perspective, the daily recommended consumption of B12 is 2.4 micrograms, and a 3-ounce fillet contains around 2.38 micrograms of B12.
Fatty foods, such as salmon, may benefit our brain function and potentially decrease cognitive loss as we age. A study of Chinese people published in the Journal of Nutrition discovered that key elements present in fish (particularly salmon) such as vitamin D, vitamin B, magnesium, and selenium can improve cognitive function.
Considering how many benefits salmon has, we should consume this food at least 2 times a week. Besides its miraculous benefits, it has a special taste and can be easily integrated into various preparations. One of these dishes is these skewers with many vegetables and salmon that you will surely like if you try them.
