    Cook’s tip This recipe can easily be doubled to serve 2. Just cook the omelettes one at a time in the pan. Oily fish such as mackerel, salmon and trout are the best source of the omega 3 fats EPA and DHA. Foods that are high in omega 3s are important for a healthy heart and could help to prevent heart attacks and strokes.
