Superfoods Friday ~ Salmon

Superfoods Friday

Like walnuts and flaxseeds, salmon contains a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. One study found that women who ate omega-3-rich fish twice per week significantly lowered their chances of heart failure later in life.  Other research has shown that eating just 3 oz of salmon twice per week can increase levels of HDL (the good cholesterol).  

Salmon has also been credited with aiding in sun protection and improved cognitive function especially in middle-aged adults, and who couldn’t use a boost of brain power (hands up!)

This week’s Superfood Friday Feature is

Salmon in a Pouch

Friday Foodie Feature Sack of Salmon

I like to purchase my salmon on the same day that I am going to cook it and it must be pink without a fishy smell.  For this recipe, I chose to bake it in the oven in parchment paper.  To garnish the salmon, I used frozen mixed sweet peppers, zucchini, lemon rings and Old Bay Seasoning salt.

Rinse Salmon filet under cool running water before placing it on a sheet of folded parchment paper.

Wash then slice zucchini to cover the salmon along with fresh or frozen sweet peppers, four pats of butter, lemon rings and seasoning salt.

Fold parchment paper over, crimping the sides then spray with cooking oil.

There’s something about eating cornbread with fish, so I make some skillet bread and placed in the oven along with the salmon.  Both were baked in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees.

Salmon cooked for 30-40 mins, until pink and flaky, then served with brown rice and cornbread.  

How do you like to cook your fish?

Father’s Day 2013

Hello Friends, I hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend!

Father's Day 2013 003

Hubby had a nice one even with a change in dinner plans, but I was able to pull off what I think was a better meal than what we would have had at a restaurant.  Yesterday he played a little one-on-one with Malik and fortunately, no injuries were sustained!

OOTD – Sodium + Suds = Stretch Skirt

God blessed us with another gorgeous summer weekend and today I am plowing through Monday like a turtle on steroids!   This morning I had to add extra spinach and kale to my green smoothie because I over did it with the sodium and suds.   Yesterday afternoon good friends of ours stopped by the house after leaving Maryland en-route home to New York.   Anytime someone visits us from Maryland I always have just one request – BRING SOME CRABS!!!!   In our house summer isn’t complete without sitting at the table covered in newspaper with a bowl of melted butter and hot sauce cracking open steamed crabs covered in Old Bay Seasoning.   Of course I must wash it down with a cold beer!   Add some boiled corn (which I forgot), potato salad and shrimp and everything is right with the world.

 

 

This outfit was laid out last week, and it’s perfect for today because it’s covering the results of too much sodium and suds but oh it was so well worth it!
