Much has been made of the health benefits of salmon thanks to its plentiful supply of omega 3's. It's a tasty option that's become popular in restaurants because it doesn't overpower diners with its, well, fishiness the way the previously mentioned fish -- sardines -- can. And here's the added benefit; just 3 ounces (85 grams) of salmon offers a full day's supply of vitamin D [source: Office of Dietary Supplements].
Salmon can be served as part of an elegant main course at a holiday dinner, topped with lemon slices. It can be mixed into a salad, served on crackers or added into a pasta dish. Think of it as an option to the traditional holiday ham or turkey. It'll deliver good taste and good health.
