Health Tips - Mercury-Free Fish

Mercury-Free Fish

There is one type of fish that I recommend eating often and that is Alaskan salmon. An independent lab I work with has tested and found mercury in most American fish except for Alaskan salmon. Supposedly, there are industrial plants dumping mercury in much of the water we fish in, except near Alaska. Mercury is an extremely toxic and destructive substance, read why to avoid it.

Cold-smoked Alaskan salmon is probably easily available wherever you are. Costco has the best, least expensive cold-smoked Wild Alaskan Salmon I’ve found so far. In cold-smoking, a low temperature of 70° to 90°F is maintained in the smokehouse.

Trader Joe’s stores in America have inexpensive, flash-frozen Alaskan salmon. Stock up your freezer!

Our favorite salmon comes from our local farmers’ market. They have unbelievably mouth-watering, fresh and cold-smoked salmon. So, check out what is at your farmers’ market.

Try poaching fresh salmon briefly in salted water and adding fresh lemon once done. Or, try it raw on top of your salad!

Non-mercury fish is some of the healthiest food around!
