Superfoods to the rescue
Canned salmon loaf good source of Omega-3
JULIAN ARMSTRONG MONTREAL GAZETTE
A satisfying salmon loaf made from canned salmon is like money in the bank to a cook in a hurry.
This one is from the new cookbook (Modus Vivendi Publishing, $24.95).
Quebec dietitians Elisabeth Cerqueira and Marise Charron point out that the dish contains three superfoods: eggs, red onions and salmon.
Their book is a gold mine of 50 easy recipes based on their nominated 20 superfoods — ingredients that pay their way in terms of nutritional content.
In this recipe, the authors, who run the nutrition clinic network NutriSimple, debunk the notion that salmon should be consumed warily because of its fat content.
It contains no more fat than lean meat, they state, and is a good source of the healthy fat known as Omega-3.
This recipe contains 190 calories per serving.
Besides offering catchy photographs and plenty of dietary tips, the authors say these recipes will improve your mood and fortify your body.
