Tip: You could replace the salmon with ocean trout. Hint: Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 1 hour before using to prevent them burning during cooking. Oily fish such as salmon is rich in omega-3 fats that help protect the heart and promote good mental health. All fish are rich in protein and iodine, which assists thyroid function. Oily fish are high in vitamins A, niacin, B6, B12 and phosphorous, as well as vitamin D for healthy bones. Salmon also contains the antioxidant trace element selenium, which helps protect cells from damage.
