Salmon on Couscous

Salmon is quite lean (low in saturated fats) and contains essential oils for your body. Couscous is full of fibre and energy for your sports activities.

  • Box of couscous
  • Tomatoes
  • Various spices

Lightly fry or grill the salmon fillets in olive oil for a few seconds. To make the couscous you can follow the instructions on the box.

Salmon on a Bed of Salad

Make sure you purchase fresh salmon filets from a reputable fish market. To check if the salmon is fresh give it a smell, if it gives off a smelly fishy smell it might be old. Otherwise looking at the salmon the flesh should be firm and glistening. Dull looking meat will be older.

Salmon on a bed of salad

  • Salmon fillets
  • Lettuce mix
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Pomegranates
  • Avocado

Cut a nice slice of raw salmon, build the salad by adding all of the greens and add some balsamic vinegar and a small amount of oil. Try to stay away from salad dressing mixes as they often contain many preservatives and are often fattening.
