Salmon, being a blue fish, stands out for the quality of its high biological value proteins and its heart healthy fats. Salmon provides about 11 grams of fat per 100 grams of meat. The fat is rich in omega-3s, which help to reduce cholesterol and plasma triglyceride levels, and also increase blood flow, which prevents the formation of clots or thrombi.

The mixture with egg, enriches the recipe in proteins of high biological value, lecithin, vitamins of group B, A and D.
