Baked Salmon Belly
Staying healthy as you age is very important and a balanced diet is a great place to start. Studies have said that eating fish on a regular basis can help improve heart health, fight Alzheimer's Disease, protect your sight, maintain joint health and keep your bones strong.
Sometimes seen as an offcut, salmon belly is a truly delicious piece of fish – it’s packed full of flavour and has all the goodness of omega-3. The good news is that by buying fish belly you can grab yourself a great deal and enjoy a healthy and delicious meal or snack.
A little known secret is that in many supermarkets in Vancouver, BC you can get salmon belly for up to 1/4 of the price of regular priced salmon. Some markets will mix various species of salmon in the packaging and others will package by species. If your market does not have salmon belly readily available ask someone from the fish department to see if they have stock in the back.
