Lime, Chilli and Ginger Glazed Regal Salmon with Japanese rice and Asian greens

We all know salmon is a healthy food; but who knew it can work wonders as part of a beauty routine?  Eating healthily and exercising regularly brings inner beauty to the surface.  And King salmon is an ideal food for keeping us ‘beautiful’ inside and out. Regal King Salmon is a rich and natural source of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids, powerful antioxidants and essential minerals including selenium, zinc, iodine and vitamin D.  So, how much salmon should we be eating? A Regal King salmon steak about the size and thickness of a deck of cards contains about 2,000mgs of long-chain Omega-3s. To prevent a deficiency of Omega-3s, health authorities recommend about 650mgs of omega-3s a week for women and 1,100mgs for men.  Salmon twice a week is ideal.

Here's a yummy salmon recipe to try:

    That looks really pretty. I'm not a great salmon fan but I think that the lovely chilli, lime and ginger sauce would work well to reduce the normal richness of the fish and give it a zesty freshness.
