I think Kenya could eat salmon every day of the week if I offered it to him. He adores it plain, but I thought I would jazz it up a bit before he gets bored of it! This is a perfect recipe when you want to feed the kids, but also impress your significant other when they come home after a long day. Kenya was a big fan of this new twist.
Salmon is an incredible source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D as well as being a high source of protein. I buy wild salmon as often as possible, as there are many documented concerns about the high levels of PCBs in farm raised salmon, but if you can’t find it or it’s too expensive look for Pacific salmon which is generally wild-caught.
Served with a simple steamed veggie and rice, this sweet broiled salmon entree is a super easy recipe to prepare and cleans up so fast, you’ll leave everyone with the impression that you’re a gourmet.
