Speedy Mediterranean Salmon Tray Bake

816 views 2 min to read

Looking for a nourishing dinner that will be on the table in roughly 30 minutes? Well, look no further, this one-tray wonder ticks all the boxes!

It is recommended that pregnant women consume oily fish roughly 2-3 times per week. Oily fish such as salmon, trout and mackerel are all rich sources of omega 3 fatty acids and choline. Choline supports proper foetal brain development and nutrient transfer across the placenta. Choline is also found in high-fibre cannellini beans. We combined these nutrient-rich wholefoods with some of our favourite Mediterranean flavours to make a speedy dinner suitable for expectant mothers and the rest of the family too!
