Mediterranean Sardines over Fennel and Arugula
May 29, 2018

Sardines are one of the best sources of Omega-3 fatty acids.  They are also readily available and sustainable.  In fact, they are abundant and one of the few wild-fish populations not on the decline.  The mustardy vinaigrette and herbs offset the fishiness of the sardines.  If you do not like sardines this recipe may not change your mind but the fishiness is not as noticeable with the dressing.  I do not care for sardines out of the can but I actually ate this salad with a portion of the sardines and it was good.  Try it!  It is really good for you and if you like sardines you will love this recipe.

Healthy Vietnamese Chopped Salad
May 25, 2018

Swim suit season is upon us and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious light and flavorful dish.  This is a really healthy salad that is full of antioxidants.  This is great alone but paired with any protein and you have a knockout meal.  If you are cooking for your guy, pair it with a grilled bison or beef steak.   If you are cooking for your girl, pair it with some fish or chicken.  They will not complain that you have made a salad.  They will not even notice because the flavor is that good.   The dressing is a perfect balance of hot, sour, salty , and sweet and is bursting with flavor.

Spicy Chicken Lettuce Wraps
April 30, 2018

Feeling spicy? Try these chicken lettuce wraps. This recipe calls for one tablespoon chili garlic sauce but if you like a lot of heat add another tablespoon or two or even three if you are a real hot and spicy lover. I would recommend starting off with one and then add more chili sauce until you have reached your desired heat index. I use living lettuce rather than romaine because it seems to last longer if you are using for meal preparation and not dinner or lunch. Also, the sweet & sour sauce can be found at any specialty food market. It is gluten free, fat free and low in sodium. It would replace gluten-free Hoisin sauce.

For those of us that love salmon and are continually trying to find new ways to prepare it each week, this recipe will not disappoint. Serve it with a salad or with some of your favorite vegetables. These are fried in a skillet and to keep the fat down I use a spray bottle of olive oil to just thinly coat the bottom of a non-stick skillet.
