Scrumptious and Simple Salmon
Though I have a strong inclination toward a vegan diet, I do love salmon. Love as in “I could eat it everyday” love. However, I tend to eat it 2-3 times per week and stick to a plant based diet the rest of the week.
There are tons of health benefits to eating salmon. The omega-3’s present in salmon contribute to decreasing the risk of cancer (yah!), improving eye health and cardiovascular function. Oh, and, the omega-3s found in salmon also lock moisture into skin cells, encouraging the production of strong collagen and elastin fibers, which contribute to more youthful looking skin. Better than botox, right? Nice Silver Lining.
Speaking of Silver Lining, Chef Maili (with whom I’ve been playing in the kitchen for the past few weeks!) came up with an amazingly scrumptious and super simple salmon recipe. It’s my new fave. Usually, I’m not a big fan of cooking with ginger; however, this recipe rocks. It’s the perfect balance between sweet and savory.
Hope that you enjoy it as much as we are!
Here’s how to cut salmon:Here’s a great lesson in cutting garlic. Smash the garlic with the side of a knife to get the skin off. For dicing, if you sprinkle a wee bit of salt on the garlic, then the garlic won’t stick to the side of the knife. Genius tip from Maili!
The honey is the secret, magic ingredient!
