Wild alaska salmon traybake & why omega-3 is so key

When it comes to gut health, studies have linked omega-3 intake with increased gut bacteria diversity as well as with microbes that produce the gut-loving short chain fatty acids (SCFA). These clever little SCFAs in the gut (especially one called butyrate) are thought to play a role in protecting us against things like bowel cancer, diabetes and depression

Wild Alaska salmon is naturally rich in DHA and EPA , as well as being low in saturated fat and a good source of vitamin D and selenium. I’ve teamed up with Alaska Seafood to create this quick, easy and deliciously nutritious dish, packed with plant-based diversity and a hit of Omega-3 from the succulent salmon fillets.
