I am really excited to share today’s Superfood Saturday Series round-up of 13 Must Try Salmon Recipes.

13 Must Try Salmon Recipes

I am a big fan of salmon and try to fit it into our weekly meal plan whenever possible.  Not only do I love the way it tastes and the variety of ways it can be prepared, but I love what it does for our bodies.

Salmon is protein packed and offers you a lot of omega-3 fatty acids which does many good things for your body, including helping to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease  and the DHA boosts brainpower and helps cognitive function.  The short of it, salmon packs a nutritional punch and can be made in so many different delicious ways.

Try one of these 13 ways to add this superfood to the mix.
