    We eat salmon usually 5 times a week, I make it every way imaginable. My hair is past my waist and healthy, my husband shaves his head so not sure. Our skin is soft and minimal wrinkles, we are in our 40's, of course we live in Florida but dont bake in the sun so it could be the humidity that keeps our skin nice. Hopefully our hearts are healthier which is the main thing

    5 times a week sounds a little excessive...

    Do you buy frozen or fresh? How much do you have to pay? Here in TX, we pay around $15 a pound for wild Alaskan Salmon when it's available.

    We eat it in our salads as well, some people eat potatos 5 times a week, we happen to like salmon, and we arent meat eaters, so seafood and chicken is the meat in our meals

    I usually buy it from Publix, and it is fresh farm raised, alot of times it is on sale for $6.99, you cant beat that. The best salmon I have had was in Oregon. Yum!

    Holy shit, two of my fave things to eat in life are salmon and spinach. I could eat them morning, noon and night. Love em.

    I need to look more into this, but given the expense, it's hard.....at least for Salmon.

    Super walmart has wild salmon in the seafood section, it is individually packaged in a bag and I think its around $6 for a lb. Where they keep the frozen shrimp in a bag. I havent bought it before, but it looks like a good deal.

    Very interesting. I was just wondering why I was noticing a marked glow to my skin, and maybe its because I've been eating a lot more seafood.

    you can do so many (easy) things with salmon. steam it (just buy one of those steam basket thingies at any asian food shop), papillotte (wrapped in tinfoil with maybe some onion or carrots or veggies or basically anything you can think of, and some herbs), cook in a very hot pan (has to be rawish in the middle though), broil it in the oven (stick it in a dish on the highest oven rack, so it's close to the broiler on top, and cook it for about 1 or 2, then turn it, and cook for another minute or 2 - and that's for really thick slices, so that the top and bottom get crunchy but the middle remains rawish).

    It is delicious with a bit of lemon and butter, wrapped in foil and placed on the grill.

    My brother also makes a great salmon salad to eat with crackers. yum!

    I take Omega 3 supplements, 4000 mg a day, and I have noticed a change in my hair and skin. I am from the deep south, so we have a lot of humidity in our air, but my almost 46 year old skin is very smooth.

    Alice-I have it about 2-3 times a week. The best way,I think is broiled (not too close to the heat) slowly in lemon juice. Salt.Pepper. I don't like mine anyway but well done. I don't think it even needs butter.Too boring? Add pico de gallo! And black beans with chopped fresh onion on top. Oh-and garlic bead. It sounds more expensive than it is-watch for sales. Either fresh or frozen is good.
