Miso Broth with Salmon & Udon Noodles

A simple, exciting, fast and above all nutritious meal for busy families. It is both a recipe for a weeknight or a recipe to impress at a dinner party.

Salmon contains a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids. About half of this omega-3 fat is provided in the form of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and a slightly lower amount is provided in the form of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). In general, the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids involve improved control of the body’s inflammatory processes (cardiovascular health), improved mood and cognition and joint protection.

To limit sodium intake leave the broth in the bowl.
