Australian Institute of Fitness Nutrition Expert, Shivaun Conn, says “this nutritious dinner is high in omega-3’s, protein, vitamins and minerals whilst being low in kilojoules, perfect for people looking to manage their weight and maintain good health.”

Plus, Atlantic salmon is an excellent source of high quality protein, vitamins and minerals and one of the best sources of the essential polyunsaturated fatty acid omega 3 (EPA+DHA). Omega-3 fats have been shown to reduce inflammation, be protective against heart disease, and contribute to healthy brain function.
