Salmon has quickly become one of my go-to, easy weeknight dinners. Total life saver. Fancy fare that’s so (SO) easy to make, it’s embarrassing! It’s incredibly versatile too; think salads, pasta, roast potatoes… you name it! The possibilities are endless. Not only does it deliver great protein, Omega 3’s & tastes great; but it’s literally ready in 10 minutes & makes for quick, weeknight dinners while still supporting healthy eating habits.
Before we move on to the recipe, I thought it would be important to add this side note. Have you ever given much thought to where or how your salmon was raised/farm when you visit the grocery store? Well, I’ll be perfectly honest. I didn’t either. I know better now and am well aware of the many dangers of farm-raised salmon using open net-cage technology. Fish farming involves the use of pesticides, chemicals & antibiotics. Not only does this contaminate the fish being farmed, but the surrounding marine environment. Always opt for salmon that is either wild caught; or responsibly raised in a close containment system. I found a brilliant online brochure on this subject, by none other than the David Suzuki Foundation. For those of you wanting to read more in order to make better informed choices, it’s called “Think Twice About Eating Farmed Salmon”. Check it out!
Now back to that salmon dream & the perfect marinade! I consume large amounts of wild caught salmon because of the essential fatty acids & the Vitamin D. I believe that salmon is one of the best anti-inflammatory foods on the planet. I also believe less is more when it comes to marinating salmon & you don’t need to unload your entire spice rack or you’ll lose the flavor of this wonderful, fatty fish. You are looking to compliment the flavor, not to obliterate it. Always keep that in mind.
For garnish: some capers or lemon slices goes great! Instructions If you want to recreate the above picture, it’s an incredibly easy salad: baby spinach, sliced pear, dried cherries, avocado, pepita or pumpkin seeds & balsamic vinaigrette. Enjoy with a glass of wine, friends! By: Aleyda | The Dish On Healthy
