Salmon noodle salad with ginger and lime dressing

World Salmon Day is on Saturday, October 8 and it has us asking the question, ‘How much fish does your kid eat?’ Packed full of nutrients, including protein, B group vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is the ultimate superfood. However, a new survey reveals half of Australians aren’t turning to the most effective food sources when looking for an omega-3 boost.

We thought an easy recipe that helps you and your family increase your intake of fish might just be good for the weekly meal plan. If you have Little Ones or fussy easters, try our Crumbed salmon, lemon and dill patties instead.
