It was narrated by Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and by Ibn Maja in his Sunan, , from the hadith of Abd Allah Bin Umar, that the Prophet Muhammad, salah la alahi was salem said,
” Two items of dead meat and two of blood have been made lawful for us: fish and locust and liver and spleen”.
There are many kinds of fish and the best fish are those that are pleasing to taste and that live in fresh water running over stones, feeding on plants and not scavengers.
One such fish is salmon. The marinade we are using is the Moroccan Marinade and the recipe is in my book, Heavenly Bites: The Best of Muslim Home Cooking. The book is out in America next month inshallah, however you can always order it from the publishers Kube Publishing and they will airmail it where ever you are inshallah.
Back to our fishy friend. Salmon contains essential fatty acid for the body called Omega 3 , which is good as protective against cancer, heart disease, mental development of children and other mental health illnesses. It good for the brain basically.
It also contains bio active protein called bioactive peptides that are good for joint cartilages, insulin effectiveness and control of inflammation in the digestive tract.
