If you are a fan of risotto, then make sure you save this recipe. The Safcol salmon makes the perfect protein for this dish. Salmon is a great source of omega 3 fat, protein as well as other vitamins and minerals. Vitamins to highlight are vitamin D which is needed for optimal immune system function and to assist calcium to be absorption. Salmon also contains iodine and selenium which support the health and function of your thyroid. Salmon supplies choline and vitamin B12 which both play roles in maintaining central nervous system function as well as creating red blood cells.
Extra virgin olive oil is full of polyphenols and over 36 different antioxidants! These help to fight off excess free radicals which can damage and cause disease to your body. Extra virgin olive oil also regulates your cholesterol levels shifting them more towards the ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and less towards the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.
The delicious parmesan adds additional iodine, B12, choline and selenium but also calcium. Calcium is a mineral needed for strong bones and teeth as well as optimal muscle contractions. Arborio or Carnarol rice adds an array of vitamins and minerals, as well as fibre, assisting satiety.
Mushrooms are full of energy-providing B vitamins. These help your body make energy from the food you eat. Onion and garlic both have anti-microbial properties which support a healthy gut and immune system function. The next time you are in the mood for risotto, this recipe is a healthy option.
