Salmon is a prized fish because it is high in Omega-3, a essential fatty acid required for brain development and to reduce risk of chronic pulmonary diseases. This recipe is not only satisfying and convenient, it brings out the natural flavours of a Wild Caught Salmon.

Healthy finger food goes a long way when we are trying to watch our waistlines. Instead of dipping your fingers in potato chip bags or chocolate bars ( Snickers , my favourite), try a health dish with Salmon and melons or Salmon and mussels. Most likely, melons would be mostly available at home but this recipe works well with mussels as well.
250g of Honey Dew or Rock Melon
6 Slices of Smoked Salmon (300g)
12 Large cooked mussels
- Slice the melons into cubes
- Divide each salmon slice into 4 parts.
- Roll half the salmon slice around the pieces of melon and the other hald around the mussels.
- Stick the cocktail sticks through them.
