Nutritional values

The great thing about salmon is that its protein not only helps build muscle. The fish is also rich in fat. And that's a good thing: its omega-3 fatty acids protect the heart and blood vessels and lower cholesterol levels. The salmon meat also concentrates the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E. They promote night vision, strengthen the bones and allow the blood to flow smoothly.

Since the snack contains hardly any carbohydrates, a side dish such as baguette or baked potato is recommended. This makes the salmon with the Asian spiced vegetables a full-fledged meal.
