Who eats salmon? Well just about anyone that you ask will say, "ME! It's good for you."
And sure, I will answer the same way. For all we hear about is how, of all the different types of fish, salmon has received the most praise for being a nutritional marvel.
It is one of the most nutritious types of fish you can eat. It supplies iron, zinc, niacin, vitamin B6, B12, in addition to a whole host of other nutrients you need for good health.
So WHAT do I need to WARN you about?
We try to eat salmon once weekly. My husband loves when I make salmon cakes fried in olive oil. Delicious! So a few month's ago I was making my monthly trek to Walmart. While shopping, I have been known to stand and read the labels for 10 minutes or more. The reason my husband really does not like going with me to the grocery store. As I began comparing prices on the packaged salmon, I sought out "where" the fish was coming from.
Lo and behold! There it was. You can see the brand is BUMBLE BEE. Nothing on the front to alarm you. All the good stuff is there right on the front in plain view. But wait, turn it over...
Those words that make you cringe! "Made in China." Those words that send chills up my spine. Here are the pictures. Sorry one is so blurry. The one on the right, above the bar code. China? Really?
Warning: Do not buy fish from China! That is unless you do not care about the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in.
Go over the the frozen fish section in Walmart and check out their frozen fish. Remember, look carefully at the packaging for those tiny words! Tilapia also is one popular fish that also is imported from China. Nope. Not for me.
But please note: Not every fish that is worth eating comes on ice.
Almost all canned salmon is wild-caught in Alaska. So support the good old USA and get all of the environmental and health benefits for just a few dollars.
China can keep their fish and eat it themselves.
