Baked salmon with leeks and peppers

Oily fish is an excellent source of omega 3 fats. They cannot be produced in the body and are vital for good health. Omega-3 fats can help stop blood clots in the arteries, lower triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood), and help lower blood pressure. They are also incredibly important for brain health, especially in relation to memory and emotions. The omega 3s in fatty fish such as salmon, trout, sardines, tuna, and mackerel may be helpful against depression and have been linked to a lower risk of type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. Salmon is also particularly rich in vitamin D, an important nutrient that more than 40% of people may be deficient in. It is recommended to eat fish 2 or 3 times a week and include oily fish at least once.

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ teaspoon butter (optional)
