Health Benefits of this Recipe

Salmon is a rich source of essential fatty acids EPA and DHA. DHA is particularly important in breastfeeding women as this nutrient is provided to babies through breastmilk to support healthy eye and brain development. Mama’s also need DHA for their own brain and eye health!


  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 sweet potato (chopped into 1cm cubes)
  • 1 eggplant (sliced into 1cm thick pieces and salted)

  • Extra virgin olive oil

Teriyaki Sauce:​

1. Cook the brown rice as per packet instructions.

5. Place the marinated salmon and broccoli on a separate baking tray and cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until salmon is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork.
