What Is a Serving Size of Salmon?

Save

Pale pink, veined salmon is almost too pretty to eat, but dig in -- it's good for you. Salmon is an excellent source of protein and two types of omega-3 fatty acids -- eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, also called EPA and DHA, respectively -- that may reduce your risk of heart disease.

Serving Size

  • The American Heart Association recommends that adults eat two servings of fish, such as salmon, per week. A serving is defined as 3.5 ounces of cooked fish or 3/4 cup of flaked fish. A 3.5-ounce portion of fish is slightly larger than a deck of cards or a bar of soap. Opt for baked or grilled salmon over fatty, fried fish.
