I had memories growing up of when my Mom would make salmon and all I could smell was this stinky fish permeating throughout the house. I wouldn’t go near it. If it tasted anything like it smelled I was running in the other direction.
All this changed one day last summer when my friend Nancy convinced me I would like it.
Man was she ever right!
All she did was wrap the salmon in foil, added a little butter, honey and brown sugar and it was beyond delicious. The salmon wasn’t drenched in anything, it wasn’t fishy like I thought it would be. It was so tender and mild it had become my new favorite food. I would eat it daily if I could afford it.
I came up with my own version that I thought I would like. It has melted butter, a little brown sugar, maple syrup and a dash of Tamari (soy sauce). It was the BOMB! Just look at all that yumminess under the salmon.
This recipe makes enough sauce for 4 salmon fillets. Try it, I really think you’ll like it!
Understanding why farm raised salmon is so bad for you is very important. It Pays to Live Green has a nice article explaining why wild caught salmon is hands down the better choice. Please take a moment to read this. It’s imperative we are educated in what farm raised fish is doing to our health. Yes it is cheaper, but far more toxic!
