Get heart smart this Easter with honey garlic salmon.

Salmon is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet, credited with everything from extending a person’s lifespan to preventing heart attacks and cancer. Not only does salmon possess one of the highest omega-3 contents, it's also packed with tonnes of other vitamins and minerals.
