Health Benefits of Wild Caught Salmon
A 4 oz serving of wild salmon can give you your recommended
daily allowance of Vitamin D (very few foods can claim this).
Along with a healthy dose of omega-3
fatty acids and tryptophan which is an amino acid related to serotonin
production in your brain.
Serotonin is a chemical in your brain that helps to maintain that "Happy Feeling".
This serving size will get you close to your daily
recommended dosage of the mineral selenium and vitamin B12.

Be Careful of Farmed Salmon!
Most places will carry some type of salmon to purchase, but sadly it's usually farmed salmon. Farmed salmon is quite a step down and will not have the same taste or health benefits of wild caught salmon for your salmon tartare recipes.
You can usually tell by the color if it is wild or farmed. Wild caught salmon usually has a more vibrant orange color than farmed salmon (this fish also tends to be dyed). BTW, Atlantic salmon is almost always farmed these days.
