Chilli salmon with couscous

BBC Food
Hi,it is Zoe here and I am back with another recipe! This week I have a Chilli salmon with couscous & harissa yogurt recipe for you guys. It is quick,easy and perfect for the whole family as it is an example of a healthy balanced meal, it has salmon which is a low-iron protein source and has healthy fats,couscous which is a wholegrain that is high in fibre, yogurt which is high incalcium which contributes to bone health and vegetables. It is recommended to have 2 portions of oily fish a week and salmon counts as 1 portion; other types of oil fish include tuna, mackerel and sardines. Salmon is high in omega-3 which contributes to keeping your heart healthy.
Other things you can during lockdown that contribute to a healthy heart include exercising for 20-30 minutes a day, reduce salt intake as increased consumption can increase blood pressure, stop smoking and reduce alcohol intake. These small changes can make a positive difference.
