Recipe: Salmon With Mango Salsa
This salmon with mango salsa recipe is healthy and delicious, simple to make and one of my favorite meals. It combines mango and avocado salsa with wild salmon for protein and omega-3, monounsaturaed fats and high vitamin arugula into an highly nutritious meal.
Wild salmon will have more omega-3 than regular farmed salmon. Buyer beware: farmed salmon can even be dyed pink because of the poor nutritional quality of the fish and their GMO grain feed.
Even though contamination with mercury, pesticides, and other pollutants has become a widespread problem in salmon habitats, there are still salmon habitats that pose relatively low risk. The lowest risk category for wild-caught salmon are Alaskan salmon. Alaskan chum, sockeye, coho, pink, and chinook salmon have all been evaluated for contaminant consumption risk involving dioxins, dioxin-like compounds and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and have been found to be the lowest risk category of wild-caught salmon. This lower contamination risk amongst all wild-caught salmon is one of the reasons I recommend wild-caught Alaskan salmon.
