Are you a sushi lover? We are borderline "sushi-aholics" in our household so when we got a bounty of salmon recently, I thought "What can we do differently with salmon besides just baking it?" My answer: a SALMON ROLL SUSHI BOWL, of course! If you're a fan of our previous Super Simple Sushi Bowl, you're going to love this spin on it. Keep scrolling for the recipe!
Is salmon healthy?
Answers to these types of questions are never fully black and white -- because too much of any food is never the right way to approach a well-rounded, balanced diet -- but in short, YES, salmon is a healthy food you should enjoy! In fact, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans encourages us to eat a greater variety of protein foods by choosing seafood twice a week, yet only 1 in 10 people are actually meeting this goal. Let's change this!
Salmon in particular is a fatty fish and one of the best sources of the omega-3 fatty acid, DHA, which is essential for good brain health. (P.S. Salmon is low in mercury!)
