Pink salmon is a sufficient source of several nutrients your body needs to function well and maintain health. It is rich in calcium, with 79 mg in a 1-oz. serving. It is a solid protein source, with 20 g of protein in a 3-oz. serving. A 1-oz. serving has 10 mg of magnesium and 88 mg of potassium. Pink salmon also has iron, niacin and vitamins A, B-12, C and E. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a 100-g serving of pink salmon has 44.6 mcg of selenium, which the body uses to make antioxidants.And it is oh so tasty! Also, it is one of the faster meals that we can whip up on a night with a lot going on otherwise. My recipe is basically the one that my family has eaten my entire life, while the name "Croquets" is a nod to my dad. I hope your family enjoys these as much as my family does!
