Salmon is a healthy, delicious fish that is rich in protein, minerals, vitamins and healthy essential fatty acids.

Health benefits
Salmon is best known for its high omega-3 long chain fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) content. These "essential" fats cannot be created by the body and need to be absorbed from the diet.

They have anti-inflammatory and blood pressure lowering properties and contribute to heart and joint health, good brain function and overall well being.

Salmon is also high in:
Protein - for healing, good bone health and maintaining muscle.
Potassium - which lowers blood pressure and reduces fluid retention.
Selenium - which improves thyroid function, bone health and lowers the risk of cancer.
B vitamins - essential for energy creation, DNA repair and creation, reduction of inflammation and good heart and brain health.

How to cook salmon?
Salmon is a versatile fish that can be eaten raw in sushi or sashimi, smoked, baked, grilled, fried, steamed or poached. The head and bones can be reserved to make a broth.

The whole fish can be used and fillets or tail portions can be cooked with or without the skin.

How to increase salmon in your diet?
Aim for at least one portion of salmon each week. This delicious fish tastes good in salads, curries, soups and broths.

Experiment to find a recipe to suit your taste buds, for example:
Smoked salmon is quick, convenient and can be rolled and placed on a delicious salad with or without dressing like this smoked salmon salad or served as brunch with sweet potato rosti, smoked salmon and poached egg.
