February is ‘heart health month’, which is what inspired me to write this blog. It is recommended to eat fish twice a week, one of which is oily (if you have diabetes or have had a heart attached then you need to eat at least two portions of oily fish a week).
Oily fish tends to be the darker coloured fish such as mackerel, salmon, fresh tuna, sardines and pilchards (as opposed to cod and haddock etc). Oily fish contains essential fatty acids (omega 3) which are fantastic for your heart health. The body can’t make ‘essential’ fatty acids which is why we have to get them from our diet.
I love to experiment with cooking fish and wanted to share my favourite salmon dish with you all.. it’s light, creamy and so so good for you![ingredients]
