Salmon is a fantastic and versatile fish and a big hit with children. It is known as an oily fish and contains valuable omega 3 fats which are important for brain health as well as for skin and for helping to reduce inflammation. It is a brilliant source of protein, quick to cook and a genuinely healthy addition to any kitchen.
Salmon is quite a robust fish: brilliant for roasting, lightly frying, grilling or poaching. Serve it cooked through or lightly blushing in the middle. You don’t want to overcook it so much that the proteins in the flesh come out and you see white threads. When buying fish check that the meat looks fresh and in one piece and you want it to smell of the sea not “fishy”. Try and cook fish soon after buying as it does not stay fresh long.
