Salmon 5 Ways
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
Incorporate fresh smoked salmon into your favourite fluffy omelette recipe to add vital vitamins and get a healthy boost.
This Tenderstem Smoked Salmon Omelette recipe would be perfect for a late breakfast at the weekend. The combination of eggs, cream cheese, herbs, Tenderstem broccoli and salmon make it a very tasty way to start the day.
The Light Lunch
Salmon can be a great ingredient to use in sandwiches and salads, and if you want a lunch with a difference you’ll find lots of recipes out there to satisfy your taste buds.
Try this fresh and easy Summer Salmon Salad recipe, which mixes salmon with boiled potatoes, herbs and a yoghurt dressing. It would be lovely to eat on a warm spring day with a crisp green salad and some fresh bread.

Salmon is the star of the show in this Seafood and Tenderstem Pie. The recipe combines a creamy white sauce, fresh fish, crunchy Tenderstem broccoli and buttery mashed potato to make a comforting meal.
The Party Nibbles
Smoked salmon and crème fraiche are perfect partners, but if you add a little wasabi to the mix you can serve guests a party treat with a twist.
