There's nothing quite like taking that first bite of salmon. The rich flavours and unique texture make it one of the most popular seafood dishes in Canada. But there's another great reason to reach for an extra helping of salmon: it's also great for your eye health.
That's because salmon contains large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, which studies have found may help protect your eyes from macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome.
So what are you waiting for? Try this mouth-watering smoked salmon pizza recipe for a decadent meal that's also great for your eyes.
Refrigerated pizza dough (pre-bought or made from scratch)
