A little bit of History:
The fascinating story of the salmon follows this fish as it travels thousands of miles from its birthplace only to return withing five years to spawn and die. Traditional salmon preservation methods include smoking and salting

Salmon is high in Omega-3 acids, a good source of the B-Vitamin group, niacin and selenium. The composition of the human brain is more than 60 per cent fat, making salmon with its high levels of omega 3 a true 'brain food'. Some nutritionists and dermatologists also claim that eating salmon everyday can give you a 'face lift', as it plumps out and feeds the skin


  • Purchase wild rather than farmed salmon which are believed to contain dangerous carcinogenics
  • Treat yourself firth thing in the morning by adding smoked salmon to your scrambled egg on toast
  • Instead of your usual work sandwich, enjoy a bagel with cream cheese and slivers of smoked salmon
  • The Japanese have one of the healthiest diets in the world: follow their example and tuck in to raw salmon
  • Create a tasty snack by lightly broiling a salmon fillet and serving with salad and a wedge of lemon
