Festive Salmon

Easy to put together and speedy to cook, this pretty salmon dish goes very well with my Christmas salad recipe, it makes a delicious meal to serve on Christmas Eve. Also ideal for the Boxing Day buffet table.

Salmon is a good source of protein, also providing 6% of your RDI for vitamin C, 53% of vitamin B12 and 30% of vitamin B6. A good source of magnesium, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids.
