Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips

All Australians are recommended to enjoy 2-3 serves of fish per week,  including oily fish such as salmon. Consuming this amount of fish per week will help to provide the 250-500 milligrams of marine-sourced omega-3 oils (EPA and DHA) per day required for good heart health.
