Wild caught Alaskan salmon is one of the very best sources of omega-3. It is also one of the few choices of foods containing vitamin D. Because they eat what nature intended for them to eat, munching on things like red seaweed, wild salmon has a deep red colour and high astaxanthin content. Whereas farmed salmon has a 1:1 ratio of omega 3 to omega 6, wild salmon typically has 600-1000 times the amount of omega 3 compared to omega 6. The capers, mustard and tomatoes further boost antioxidant profile of this dish.
