This recipe is bound to be a crowd favourite for both taste and nutrition benefits! The Safcol Salmon in Springwater helps your blood cholesterol by increasing the ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and helping to lower your triglycerides. In addition to this omega 3 fat is an anti-inflammatory fat and may help with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. If you are keen for a sharp brain then this fat is an essential part of your diet, as 60% of your brain is made from fat! Salmon also provides B12 which is needed for your body to make red blood cells and for your central nervous system to work normally.

DHA is one part of the two parts which make up the omega 3 fat structure in salmon. DHA is important as it is the main type of fat needed in the retina of your eye.
