Smoked salmon…………I am not sure if I will be posting this one, because it is very easy and simple recipe and “no cooking” involve on this dish. Just want to share you a quick and easy appetizer if you have an unexpected visitor in your place. You can serve this while you are cooking for your dinner, It is a great starter paired with a good glass of wine. Or maybe a snack will do, just add a bread and butter on the side preferably a bagel or just a simple toast……………………..Did you know that smoked salmon is a good source of omega3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are unsaturated fats found in oily, meaty fish like salmon, as well as flax-seed, walnuts, canola, and soy. These fatty acids are very beneficial for overall good health. Smoked salmon is also a “superfood” with multiple health benefits as a great source of protein, the antioxidant vitamin E and vitamin B-12.. Smoked salmon also has lower mercury content than other larger meaty fish such as swordfish and shark, making it a safer choice for fish rich in omega-3. Sometimes touted as a miracle food, smoked salmon isn’t going to cure any diseases on its own; however, there is evidence that including it in a balanced diet on a regular basis can help the body maintain good health…….
