A wish for fertility and growth
One of the Shabbat mitzvot says Pru vRvu. And with eating a fish we ask to be as many as fish in the sea to grow our community and peoplehood.
P.S. The health properties of fish and the phosphor are so well known that they are believed to contribute to the cleverness. And so many jokes are told about the heering and the Jews. We sure know at least one. No wonder that some cultures demand to eat fish at least once a week and avoid meat and that is even a pescetarian diet?
Salmon is probably the most easy to handle fish, easy to prepare and easy to ruin aka overcook.
Since it can be eaten raw, make sure not to overcook it because the protein gets harder with the cooking time.
