Wood-Fired Fish

We all know that fish is a good-quality protein. It is recommended to be consumed frequently because of the high bioavailable protein and DHA omega-3 content (particularly in fatty fish). It’s quick to cook and packed with flavour. Make sure to always purchase locally and sustainably sourced fresh fish. The benefits obtained from food should stretch further than just the nutritional content thereof. Eating a highly nutritious farmed piece of salmon imported and flown over 2 continents with a carbon footprint the size of a rugby stadium is not the aim of healthy eating. Always pay attention to where your food comes from and that health habits are more than just what you eat.
