Michelle Bridges’ low-calorie salmon stir fry is mid-week saviour

Stir fries are always a winner, because they’re quick, easy and healthy. Michelle Bridges offers up ginger salmon for a nutrient-packed, satisfying dinner for under 300 calories. 

Quick, easy and always delicious, you can’t go wrong with a stir fry.

This one from Michelle Bridges uses salmon as its source of protein, fish that is high in protein, vitamins, and healthy fats like Omega 3, which your body does not produce itself meaning you need it in your diet.

It’s flavoured with immunity-supporting ginger and garlic, and balanced out with vitamin A-packed Chinese broccoli.
