Miso salmon with buckwheat noodles recipe

Salmon is a great source of protein and the added miso paste has many nutrients and health benefits. Check the recipe and all the health benefits below.

Health benefits of the different ingredients

Salmon is a great source of protein with 22-25g of protein per 100 gram. It’s also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for the brain and heart health. It is high in selenium, which is important for our thyroid function and reproductive health. Lastly it’s rich in vitamin B12, important for producing red blood cells and regulating the central nervous system.

When eating fish – if possible, try to choose wild fish and particularly small oily wild fish like for example – salmon (wild), mackerel, anchovies, sardines, and herring. They’re all very healthy options.

We highly recommend to follow Stig Bengmark´s advice regarding heating food; limit heat-induced inflammation-causing proteins/heating toxins – known as glycated and lipoxidated products. Never heat/cook your food over 120-130 degrees celsius. Note that when food is heated at lower temperatures, a longer cooking time may be needed.

Miso paste has many nutrients and health benefits. It is mainly made from fermented soya bean where the fermentation process promotes the beneficial bacteria –potentially boosting digestion, supporting immune system and helping fight (chronic) diseases.

Note that miso is quite salty so if you are watching your salt intake limit the amount but as the flavour is strong you won’t need too much.

Other sources of healthy fermented food are sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha.
