Super Foods!! I am glad that I like most of them on the list. I am also glad that they are so readily available and at a good price during the summer months! I am trying to work my way into the super foods series by easing into them. For my first attempt, I started with the easy foods. The ones everybody likes. To be honest – I have NO idea what I’m gonna do with kale…
I made a salmon dish that used 5 of the 20 superfoods. I kept it light for lunch, but you could add some parmesan quinoa as a hearty side dish and pack 2 more super foods into your one dish!
Super Foods used: Salmon, Blueberries, Chiles, Avocado, and olive oil.
I made my recipe for fruit salsa adding chopped avocado to it to boost its super powers.
I seasoned a wild salmon filet with salt, granulated garlic, and crushed red pepper, then sautéed it in a little olive oil until it was golden and cooked through. (about 8-10 minutes)
Place the cooked filet on a plate and spoon the fruit salsa over the top. Done! Serve it with a fresh green salad, or some steamed brown rice (or quinoa) for a delicious meal. One that you can feel good about too! The fruit salsa is delicious with all fish, chicken and served by itself with tortilla chips! This is a recipe that is easy to work into your super meals. (Try it on fish tacos too!)
That was an easy fix! I will be racking my brain about that kale, though…
