To tell you the truth, I’ve always been afraid of salmon. I order it when I eat out, but had never made it at home. But with all the nutrients that it brings to the table, its pretty much a must have in your diet! SO, here is a fool proof way to feel confident preparing delicious salmon for your family. This was my FIRST ATTEMPT, and the result was actually fantastic!
Note: Make sure to purchase Wild Caught over Farm raised. Here’s a great visual why from Prevention.com.
Additionally, wild caught salmon is higher in zinc content, and lower in saturated fat. Wild salmon wins for sure! (Look for canned wild caught salmon as well to save some $$)
Now, how to prepare fresh salmon!
4 Ingredient Salmon
Ingredients: (makes 4 servings)
3/4 lb wild caught salmon, sliced into fillets and pulled from scales
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
Olive oil cooking spray
Turn broiler on high, place rack about 6 inches away from top
Spray broiler rack with cooking spray and place salmon on broiler rack (or, as seen here, I just used a vented pizza pan over a cooking pan. Be sure to line the bottom pan with foil to catch the glaze as it melts.
Mix together brown sugar, mustard and soy sauce. Wisk until smooth.
Spoon the mixture evenly over the fillets.
Broil for 15 minutes.

*Note: much of the glaze melts off. These nutrition facts reflect the whole of the ingredients, so carb and sodium content is most likely greatly reduced after cooking.
Are you tired of side salads, having trouble getting your veggies in every day? Here is an amazing recipe that you can make in bulk and it will keep for days. You can pack with your lunch or serve as a side with dinner!
North Myrtle Beach was our family vacation destination this year. And with all the new babies around, we had a BLAST! We took turns cooking each night, and my husband and I prepared Spicy Fish Tacos for the group! WARNING: These are healthy, but SPICY! I LOVE spice, but its not for everyone. To decrease the heat, decrease the amount of adobo sauce used – use as little as a couple tablespoons. Remember, when preparing food for others, it’s a great time to prove that healthy can be tasty!!
