Excellent source of omega-3, protein and antioxidants

Wild salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, essential for skin health. These healthy fats help keep your skin hydrated, improve elasticity and reduce inflammation, resulting in a smoother and more youthful complexion.

Salmon is also a rich source of high-quality protein, necessary for collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein that helps maintain skin firmness and elasticity.

Wild salmon contains antioxidants, such as astaxanthin, which help protect the skin from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants promote a healthy and radiant complexion.

Carvolo Nero – a fibre boost

The high fibre content of Cavolo Nero aids in healthy digestion and supports gut health. A well-functioning digestive system can lead to a clearer complexion and improved skin health.

Cavolo Nero is also rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, antioxidants that help protect the skin from oxidative stress from environmental factors. They can also assist in collagen production, promoting a more youthful appearance.

Broccoli – an antioxidant powerhouse

Broccoli contains compounds that aid the body’s natural detoxification process, helping to eliminate toxins and promote clearer skin.

Packed with antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, broccoli helps combat free radicals and protect the skin from damage, leading to a more radiant complexion and reducing signs of ageing.

Enjoy the delicious flavours, knowing that you are giving your skin the care and nutrients it deserves.

Ingredients (for 2 people)

  • 240g wild salmon

  4. As everything cooks, make your dressing. Simply add all the ingredients to the bowl and mix (use a blender if you prefer a smoother consistency).
