In fact, “a usual serving of 60 grams of smoked salmon contains around two grams of salt, which accounts for approximately 30-35 percent of your recommended daily salt intake”, he warned.
“By comparison, fresh salmon contains just 0.09 grams of salt per 130 gram filet, which is far healthier.”
The same goes for breaded fish, warned the pharmacist.
“Many people try substituting fatty meats for fish because it’s perceived to be healthier. But those who don’t usually eat fish will often go for breaded fish, which also contains fairly large amounts of salt.”
