From a nutritional point of view, its pink and delicious meat is rich in vitamins, Omega 3 fatty acids and selenium. The properties of salmon are numerous and make it a valuable ally for the health of the immune system and the well-being of the heart.
Historical notes: The ancient Romans called him "Psalm Salar" - from the verb to go up - because of his attitude to go up the waterways, fighting against the opposite force of the current.
Notes: on the market there are several types of salmon: fresh, frozen or smoked. The first two do not undergo any type of treatment other than the cold treatment provided for by law, while the process of smoking salmon implies that its meat is first salted and then smoked.
