Salmon and Healthy Potato Salad

By Clare Keating, All Bodies Nutritionist and ex-chef

Healthy Salmon and potato salad

Potato salad, a classic Aussie favourite only we’ve added a few twists and made it healthier! We’ve served it here with some crispy skin salmon but you could serve it with anything you like or make a big batch and take it to a BBQ

 

Nutrition facts:

  1. High in resistant starch: When cooked and then cooled, potatoes are a great source of resistant starch! Resistant starch feeds your gut bugs (amazing!). As your gut bugs feed on it, they produce short chain fatty acids. Short chain fatty acids pay a key role in managing blood sugars and giving you a feeling of satisfaction after a meal (super amazing!).

  2. Salmon is high in good fats: Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. These fats are associated with heart health, brain function, muscle recovery and even a lean body composition.

  3. Potato skin is a great source of fibre! Wash your potatoes well and leave the skin on for a healthy gut.

Method:

  2. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the salt and pepper to the pan and then add the salmon fillets and cook for roughly 5 minutes in each side or to your liking.

  3. In a large bowl combine the chives, red onion, greek yoghurt, mayonnaise, wholegrain mustard, green beans and potato and mix to combine. Divide into 4 portions and serve with a salmon fillet
