Crispy Salmon Fish Fry - In Indian Way

Whenever I went to buy fish, I always looked at salmon in strange way though it is fresh. As I never tried salmon, but last time I decided to give it a try. The result was we all loved it. Here is, small cozy Philippians shop, they sell various kind of fresh fishes and seafood. They clean for you and cut into desired shape still its affordable place.

Salmon is high in protein, and the “good fats." Also contain B12, niacin, and selenium, and is an excellent source of B6 and magnesium. 4 oz serving of wild salmon provides a full day’s requirement of vitamin D.
