Prepping can go so many different ways. I personally love to grill it on some tin foil with a little bit of olive oil and spices… but you can bake it, broil, poach and even steam it. Doesn’t really require any seasoning to be tasty but you can definitely get some different types of meals with different seasonings. ex. Italian, mango, chili, brown sugar, rubs, marinades, sweet and tangy. . . . the list goes on! You can have it plain, mix into dishes or even have it as a breakfast option!

Wild caught salmon is the way to go, that way your not eating all the hormones and antibiotics. But if its too costly (which it can be) you will still get most of the amazing benefits with farm-raised fish as well. Store in freezer or the coldest part of your fridge.
