This is a very healthy recipe because salmon is high in omega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to help with brain functioning and is a great source of amino acids which are important for cellular growth and function. It’s low in sodium and very low in preservatives (depending on which brand of mustard you use). To make it a little more healthy I would suggest using wild salmon instead of farm raised. Wild salmon is also less fishy tasting but does cost more.
