If you want to protect yourself against heart disease and improve your cholesterol levels, try adding more salmon to your diet.

Salmon is an oily fish with high levels of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D, all of which are vital for a healthy diet. The NHS recommends that most people should eat at least two portions of fish a week, one of which should be oily fish.

We take a look at five new and exciting ways that you can prepare salmon and enjoy it throughout the week to get the most from this wonder-seafood.

The Healthy Breakfast

Tenderstem Smoked Salmon Omelette

Incorporate fresh smoked salmon into your favourite fluffy omelette recipe to add vital vitamins and get a healthy boost.
