It is a perfect weeknight dinner, but salmon is equally suitable for any celebration or during the festive season.

Is salmon healthy?

Farmed species might not have the best reputation but with wild salmon you get a healthy fish packed with plenty of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. The pink colour of salmon comes from its rich levels of a protective antioxidant called astaxanthin. This compound has been linked to lowering the risk of heart disease and cholesterol.
