Nutritionist Rob Hobson has created a delicious oily fish recipe in order to boost your omega 3 fatty acid intake.

The benefits associated with the Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are well understood, playing an important role in brain, heart, eye and joint health. Despite this, we often fail to reach the government target of two portions of fish a week. Omega 3 supplements provide a convenient means of plugging the gaps in your diet, but it is always best to take a food first approach.

Rich in omega 3, potassium, selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and C.
