Salmon Stir Fry

With Mint & Lime Greens and fluffy Rice


Stir-fries are a gift to anyone who loves being able to quickly throw together a flavoursome dish without creating a huge mess (which is everyone!). This stir fry is delicious, fresh and super nutritious, so the perfect feel-good easy meal. 

Oily fish, like salmon, are great to include in your diet once or twice a week. They are associated with awesome health benefits like protecting against cardiovascular disease, anti-inflammatory, improvements in memory, vision and skin health.

Broccolini and Chinese broccoli are both super healthy vegetables to include in as many meals as possible. They are low in energy and high in fibre, and essential nutrients like B vitamins, vitamin C, Vitamin A and antioxidants. Snow peas are also a great source of B vitamins and vitamin K.
