Salmon is a very popular fish. It’s beloved by many for its rich taste, texture, and versatility. When we hear someone saying the word “salmon”, we envision quite a few delicious dishes that we tried and enjoyed. Whether in a restaurant or at home, when salmon is on the menu, a great dinner is practically guaranteed. But what if you or someone you want to share the dinner with is diabetic? Can salmon still make it to your menu? – It definitely can! And we are inclined to say, it certainly should!

From the nutritional standpoint, salmon is practically designed for people with diabetes. 4 Oz filet packs an impressive 24g of protein and over 50% of your daily amount of Omega-3 fatty acids, while containing just 160 calories, 6g of fat, less than 1g of saturated fat, and zero carbs. Salmon also gives you an impressive collection of vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins B3, B6, and B12, Vitamin D, Potassium, and Selenium. As a result, salmon, with its powerful content, helps you stay full for longer after meal and promotes heart health by helping you lower your cholesterol and reduce blood pressure.

To ensure you get maximum health benefits from your delicious salmon filet, keep the skin on during cooking. The salmon skin contains oligopeptides that have an ability to decrease inflammation and oxidative stress, which leads to lowering blood sugar levels and protects pancreatic cells.

Just make sure when you buy salmon in a store or order it in a restaurant to go with the wild caught option instead of the farm raised one. The wild salmon will likely cost you a bit more, but the health benefits are worth the difference. – Farm raised salmon contains about 1.5 times more calories and will also give you less Omega-3 fatty acids and more saturated fat than its wild caught relative.

But all in all, if you are in the mood for fish and contemplating your options, go with salmon – it’s one of the most diabetes-friendly dinner choices you can get. Plus, there are many delicious salmon dishes out there, so you don’t get bored with it. And if you want to explore cooking options, here are some of our favorite salmon recipes.
