Salmon is loaded with healthy fats, such as omega-3, -6, and -9. These fats may help support weight loss. And they may also support heart and brain health. Plus, salmon is delicious.

The following tips can help you choose healthy and eco-friendly salmon. Steer clear of salmon that smells foul or shows signs of browning or bruising. Check for clear eyes and firm flesh that springs back when touched lightly. Frozen salmon is good for up to 4 months. Defrost frozen salmon safely in the fridge. Look for salmon in pouches or cans that are free of BPA. And choose salmon from sustainable fisheries.
