Indulge in some cooking this long weekend with three sensational salmon recipes from Great British Chef's Chris Horridge and Marcello Tully.

Salmon comes in many different species with most being found in the Atlantic and Pacific Salmon. Salmon is an important part of the eco-system, aseptically in Alaska, where it supporting a range of wildlife from birds to bears, who make the most of the annual salmon run. This major event starts when the fish migrate from the ocean to the river beds to spawn. Whilst the fish swim up stream, the bears make the most of the opportunity and grab as many salmon as possible.

Salmon has a lot of healthy properties as it is high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. The species is also classed as an oily fish which are said to decrease dementia risks, and have many positive affects on cardiovascular health.
