From The Cookbook: Ketchikan Barbecue Salmon

posted on March 26, 2013

Salmon is a great fish to include in your diet because it is so full of nutrients. Not only is it high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids or "good fats" that can reduce the potential of a handful of diseases, but also has a full-days worth of Vitamin D in a mere 4 ounces! The list goes on, but nutrients aside, this recipe from the NRA Member's Wild Game Cookbook, Second Edition is more than just healthy, it's delicious!
