Salmon is a fish that contains omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can reduce swelling in the blood vessels and reduce your chances of heart disease. Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids may boost immunity, lower blood pressure, and decrease triglycerides. Stuffed salmon pinwheels are a tasty way to incorporate salmon into your diet. Try stuffing them with a spinach filling or even a crabmeat filling for a delicious dinner that your family can enjoy.
