Healthy Dinner #4: Salmon Steaks with a Honey-Garlic Glaze
Fish? Yep, fish. We’re talking about salmon in particular today. (Be sure to enter your email address to the right and hit “Subscribe” be notified about tomorrow’s healthy entree.)
From a healthy perspective, salmon hits the motherlode. It’s nutrient dense: an excellent source of protein, potassium, thiamin, niacin, B12, omega-3 fatty acids, and Vitamin D, which is especially important during the winter when we aren’t soaking up the sun as much as we need to unless you’re like, Sheryl Crow or someone.
You know, like when it just might be -7 with the windchill: hypothetically speaking, of course.
From a tastebud perspective, salmon is full of delicious flavor and is even more flavorful when bundled up in a foil package and smothered with a sweet and savory glaze.
This recipe is yummy and as easy as pie. Much easier than pie, really.
Here are the vital stats: 6 ingredients, 12 minutes.
No problem. We’ve got this one in the bag. Or in the foil package, as it were.
So let’s get busy!
Recipe adapted from: “Cookin’ Canuck”
