At least once a week (usually on Sundays or Mondays), I make salmon for dinner. Knowing that salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, which help a little one’s brain development, has always inspired me to keep it in our regular mealtime rotation.
Salmon is full of flavor and has a firm texture which most kids love, so I like to keep it basic and not jazz it up too much with sauces. However, I find that a quick marinade made with soy sauce, O.J. and a touch of maple syrup creates a light, sweet glaze that my kids adore. It's amazing how adding just a little extra love in the form of a few everyday ingredients can turn a simple food into something extraordinary that's good for you, too!
