How To Cook Poached Salmon and Why You Should

"The slower you cook the salmon, the more omega-3 you will retain."

Salmon is one of the healthiest foods you can eat and it's delicious as well. It contains very high quality protein and the healthiest fat a human being can eat - omega 3. In fact, modern humans, especially those in industrialized nations like the United States and Europe, don't get enough omega-3 in their diet. Eating Salmon once or twice a week can go a long way to making up for this deficiency.

 

Most people bake or grill salmon. However, this process does denature some of the healthy omega-3 so it is no longer beneficial to the human body. The method of cooking salmon that is the healthiest and will not denature the omega-3 is poaching.
