With so many fish to choose from, salmon has a reputation as one of the healthiest, most-sought after fish. How many praises can we sing for these upstream-swimmers? Salmon are rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, a healthy source of protein, and are full of B vitamins and potassium and selenium and antioxidants. What does this mean? Salmon helps your stress get lower, your hair get nicer, your heart beat stronger, your bones get solid, and boosts your energy.

When it comes to which salmon to choose, there are many! In this Sheet Pan Salmon Burgers, we recommend Sockeye Salmon. It has a bit more healthy oils than other salmons and has a deep red flesh. Sockeye are known as "reds" because their flesh turns deep red when they swim against the stream to spawn.
