Salmon and Yoghurt Salad

Fresh salmon truly is a superfood due to its amazing health benefits. This recipe allows you to enjoy it in an easy to make meal, which is light and fresh – perfect for summer!

Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 12 minutes | Serves: 2 people

Ingredients:

• 2 fillets of salmon

• 1 tbsp olive oil

• 1 cucumber, chopped

• 1/2 red capsicum, sliced thinly

• 1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped finely

• 1 small red chili, chopped finely

• 1 tbsp olive oil

• 1 tbsp lemon juice

• 1/2 cup natural yoghurt (set in the tub)

• Lemon juice, Celtic sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to serve.

Method: Heat 1 of the tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan at a medium heat. Cook each of the salmon for 3 minutes either side, covering the pan.To make the salad, mix together the rest of the ingredients. Sprinkle the salmon with the lemon juice, sea salt and black pepper, and serve the yoghurt salad on the side.

Nutritional Notes: Fresh salmon is one of the best sources of naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential in the diet, and are required in the body for the production and maintenance of healthy cells, for healthy hair and skin and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Omega-3 fatty acids also encourage healthy blood lipid levels and may reduce the pain associated with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. Consuming only 3 serves of salmon per week (or other oily deep sea fish) is equivalent to taking up to 6 fish oil capsules daily! (Recipe supplied by: Renee Brown, Naturopath BHSc (Nat)).
