Naturally rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, low cholesterol protein, antioxidants and a range of essential vitamins and nutrients , it's an absolute must for the whole family, twice a week.

Other 'Superfoods' include broccoli, pumpkin, spinach, blueberries, tomatoes and beans.

The barrier for many people is the price they see at the market - at $30.00 per kilogram, it is easy to see it as a special occasion option. What's more important is the price per portion.

Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon is naturally very filling so you don't need much. The recommended serving size for an adult is 100 - 150 grams, and just 50 - 80 grams for children. However, most Salmon steaks/portions available are around 220 grams, with some cutlets large enough to feed an average family. Half of one of these portions/steaks is adequate for an adult serve.
