I somehow like salmon baked. It tastes best when baked rather than frying or in a gravy. With all the nutrient coming from this superfood, coupled with amazing taste, I think it is a must try for everyone. Few foods pack a bigger nutritional value than salmon—it’s rich in protein, heart-helping omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D. When cooking the salmon recipe, be careful not to overcook it. Salmon is a very delicate fish and will retain much of its natural moisture when prepared properly. The pinkish colour of the salmon is so appealing to the eye
