Fuel My Friday: Crisp's Salmon Stir Fry

3 Mar 2023

Another Friday means another nutritious meal from our athletes to fuel your routine, whether that's training, recovery or pre-race! This week, distance swimmer Leah Crisp shows off her Salmon Stir Fry, will you be giving it a go?

Having impressed on the domestic stage last year, freestyle-specialist Leah made sure to fuel those performances with effective nutrition to claim Women's 800m Freestyle Gold at the British Swimming Championships. Leah told us how this has become her go-to dish, made quickly after training and enough to provide several meals over a few days, especially in-between training sessions!
