The healthy vegetables streak is over, you would have seen the last couple of weeks was totally green, healthy stuff like broccoli, cauliflower and so on. For me it’s ok, but for my family, it was too much of veggies. They needed a break from it. My husband even started showing faces. I admit it was quite a lot, I made them for almost every day for 2 weeks. Now I think that I should have planned one something else in between.
After all that, I decided to spice up with some seafood. The choice was Salmon. Salmon is again a healthy one, but it gives you a lot of tasty recipe choices. Traditionally you can just toss in the pan or grill and bake it with some basic seasoning, it will still taste great.
But I wanted to do it little differently. I wanted to add some spices to make some interesting recipes.
Little bit about Salmon
Salmon is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals. Especially high in omega 3 fatty acids and protein. Salmon is also low in mercury, which makes it good for people of all ages.
Buying Salmon: When choosing to buy salmon, avoid farm raised ones. As these ones are often fed with corn or soy based food, so they are not as healthy as the wild salmons. Also these salmons doesn’t have to be fresh, the frozen ones are equally good as the fresh ones.
