My love for fish and cooking with it
We love to have fish once a week in my family and this particular recipe is very simple and easy to make.
Bright orange, beautiful in colour and taste, what’s not to like about salmon?
In the hands of an able cook, fish can become an inexhaustible source of perpetual delight. – Jean Anthelm Brillat Savarin
Did you know that there are four incredible benefits of adding salmon to your diet. It can:
- Reduce inflammation: Omega-3 fatty acids in salmon increase cell membrane fluidity, helping inhibit inflammation.
- Help burn fat: Omega-3’s can also improve fat metabolism and reduce your body’s production of triglycerides (a type of fat).
- Control blood sugar and blood pressure: Research has shown that bioactive peptides in salmon proteins may help keep these numbers in check.
- Protect your heart: Eating salmon regularly may improve your lipid levels and reduce cardiovascular disease risk.
One of the best bits is the skin. Salmon skin is super nutrient-dense; it’s got all of the omega 3’s, plus vitamin D and a slew of key vitamins and minerals. There’s many ways you can enjoy your salmon. Here’s one that is toddler, daddy and mummy approved! It’s a favourite in the house. Try it out and tell me how it went.
