Honey Salmon Bowls

I found a version of this honey salmon bowl recipe on Pinterest from and made some simple changes. It was so delicious we have decided that it will go on a regular rotation.

Having a few go to recipes for fish, especially the ones rich in Omega 3 fats is a good way to make sure that you are getting these important nutrients in your diet. I know that there are many people who don't like fish, and I am not a fan of really strong fishy flavours either, so I like to find fish recipes that are tasty and don't have a very fishy taste. This Honey Salmon Bowl recipe, is one of them. You can increase the spiciness of the fish to disguise the fish even more if you prefer, but I liked it less spicy.

Omega 3 fats are very important, in fact essential for our wellbeing. They are especially important for reducing inflammation and are now known to be beneficial in reducing the risk or symptoms of depression (1). You can get your Omega 3 oils from other sources, but fish are often the best as far as quantity goes, as well as how easy it is for our body to use it.

The recommended serves of fish each week is 2 to 3 serves to help you get the ideal amount of Omega 3 fats. This can include tinned salmon. You can have a look at my thoughts around farmed vs wild caught fish in my blog post "Salmon for those that don't like fish". I go into more in depth detail about the difference in Omega 3's in that post as well.

You can add more vegetables to this recipe if you like, but I think sometimes it is nice to keep it simple. Plus the vegetables suggested are nutrient rich, good for the gut and the brain.

Over to you!
