The Sassy Salmon


About The Sassy Salmon


We all have a story, some of us have a food story. In some cases the food stories develop over time but some of us just happen to be born into a loving, breathing and fanatical food family. I happened to be one of those! 🙂 

It is a standard joke that the Lundy family lived from meal to meal and for the most part life revolved around planning, prepping and enjoying food. My dad beamed with pleasure when second helpings were served and his heart sang when guests dined well. 

My best moments are spent in the kitchen with my girls – working through the never ending steps of another fascinating Ottolenghi masterpiece whilst sipping a glass of special bubbly, swinging to my favourite French tunes and enjoying the warm glow of fragrant candles… Bliss!

My ultimate happiness is sharing this delight with dear friends and family and witnessing the absolute delight that ingredients treated with respect and smothered with love can bring. A few months ago we had dinner with friends and out came this hot smoked salmon side, humbly served with a wonderful fresh salad and crisp ciabatta. It was simple but sublime. There and then I had the unstoppable desire to have it again and to share this sensory experience far and wide. 

The Sassy Salmon was born.

Why We LOVE Salmon

Builds Immunity

The combo of omega-3’s, selenium, and vitamins A and D are key for improving immunity! As little as two servings per week can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and cognitive decline.

Boost Your Brain

Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B12 in addition to selenium and choline. All of which are proven to improve brain function, cognition and overall neurological health.. 

Awesome when Pregnant

Salmon is jam packed with DHA, a type of polyunsaturated fat. This means that enjoying salmon while pregnant can bolster fetal brain development.


Salmon is known to have a whole host of anti-inflammatory benefits by protecting cells from DNA damage, including reducing risk of depression and possibly anxiety.
