Erika writes about one of her favorite pastimes and shares a recipe too! See what else she’s working on at What’s for Dinner?- a food delivery service.
When I’m not cooking, I love to fish! I know that it is not the most popular pastime among my women friends. In fact, I have been questioned and teased by many over the years. That is of course, till I come by for dinner with fresh fish!
What better past time can there be? You spend the day outdoor on a lake, stream or the ocean. You are surrounded by wild life and get quality time with your fellow anglers. And, after all this good stuff, you come home with fresh fish, the likes that you cannot buy!
As my hubby and I get ready for another trip north to Alaska for some R&R and fish time, I thought I’d share some thoughts about one of my favorites–salmon. Wild caught please, none of that farm raised stuff!
Salmon are delicious with exceptional nutritional value found in few other foods. This fish is low in calories and saturated fat, yet high in protein and contains omega -3 fatty acid. Wild-caught salmon have recently been evaluated as superior not only because of its rich omega-3’s, but also for its health-supportive balance of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Some studies show the enjoying salmon may help raise omega-3 levels as effectively as daily fish oil supplementation. Wouldn’t you rather enjoy a delicious fish meal twice a week than swallow a capsule of fish oil every day?
