If you tried the Miso Salmon recipe I posted a while back, then you should definitely try this Almond Crusted Salmon meal. 

I don't eat a lot of meat as you may have already noticed by the lack of meat recipes I make. I'll have chicken 1-2 times a week and the rest of my meals tend to be vegetarian - I eat a lot of eggs. But I do LOVE salmon and seafood! If I eat out I'll always go for a salmon or prawn meal 😋

Not only is salmon extremely delicious, it is also....

  • High in omega-3 fats which are great for reducing inflammation and improving the health of your heart, brain, skin and joints. 
  • High in protein and together with the healthy fats your blood sugar levels will be more stable and you will feel fuller for longer (less after dinner snack cravings).
  • High in selenium which is a mineral that plays an important role in stabilizing our blood sugar levels. 
  • Plus loads more benefits!
