When you get tired of tuna sandwiches, try this recipe, which takes its inspiration from the sushi bar. Canned salmon is an essential cupboard staple and a convenient way to get the omega-3 benefits of oily fish, as well as useful calcium (from the salmon bones).


Healthy Cooking Tip

Toast the sesame seeds in a small, dry frying pan, stirring constantly, for 2–3 minutes or until light golden and fragrant.
