Quick And Easy Broiled Salmon

By Celeste DeCamps | Recipes

Preheat the broiler

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil

Place salmon fillets on sheet

Rub olive oil on the salmon

Sprinkle salt, black pepper, dill, basil, fennel and a little turmeric onto the salmon

Broil salmon about 8-10 minutes depending on the thickness.

Salmon is done when the flesh flakes easily with a fork

For a quick side dish of steamed vegetables, I heated up a bag of Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers.

Dinner was paired with a glass of Paul Dolan Chardonnay from Mendocino County.

For lunch the next day, I made a wonderful salad with the leftover salmon.

I took the salmon out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature.

In the meantime, I put together baby kale, 1/2 an avocado, tomatoes, sweet red and yellow peppers, chopped baby carrots, cucumbers, feta cheese, and dried cranberries. I cut the salmon into pieces and mixed it into the salad. Quick, easy, and delicious.

Green Smoothie

By Celeste DeCamps | Recipes

Nutri Bullet has changed my life. I never thought I would enjoy drinking kale, but I do. This high speed blender makes the best smoothies.

Today I put in the blender:

A big handful of kale

1/2 an avocado ( it gives a creamy texture to the drink)

6 baby carrots

1/2 a banana

1/2 cup of mixed frozen fruit

A few slices of fresh ginger

Some mint leaves

1 tbs Flax seed oil

And water

The only thing I can taste is the banana, ginger and mint. It’s wonderful and filling.
