20 Foods High in Protein

15. Salmon.

Lean protein options have been another craze in recent years and many have flocked to the consumption of salmon in recent years due to the high nutrient density per serving. Salmon, especially sockeye salmon, is a valuable protein source for anyone who wants a good mix of protein, nutrients, and omega fats. A three ounce serving (many restaurants offer 4-5 ounce servings) contains 23 grams of protein and it is a great way to fill up for dinner. Considering salmon is a filling protein source, many eat this for dinner to avoid loading up on heavy calories before going to bed.
