Zesty. Elegant. Crunchy. Smooth and satisfying. This is a quick and easy meal, yet packs a punch thanks to the lemon and deal butter drizzled over the pan-fried Salmon and the Baby Plum Tomatoes popping with sweet tanginess. Baking the Asparagus offers an enjoyable crunch whilst maintaining its distinct flavour. The buttery and chive Baby New Potatoes are divine, and the strength of flavours on this dish are cut through cleanly with a dollop of Organic Sheep Yoghurt. Restaurant experience, all from the comfort of your home. Yum! YUM! 😋

- Sheep Yoghurt contains about twice the protein and fat of cow’s milk, but this also means twice the ‘healthy’ fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, including Omega 3 & 6). The body needs healthy fats for many bodily functions, like absorbing vitamins. These healthy fats lower in the lactose burden, making it extremely gentle on the digestive system and provides a higher dose of many vitamins compared to cow’s milk.
- Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
