Who knew salmon could be sexy, right? I didn’t. In fact, I never ate it much until I understood what it could DO for me. What if I told you it's like this magical little fish that will help transform your body and skin? AND it tastes amazing! Yes, please!!
This recipe is SO easy to make (it's kinda ridiculous), yet so delicious and elegant! Thanks to the little shortcut I discovered by using a delicious Dijonnaise by Sir Kensington, a mundane salmon dinner is transformed into a gourmet experience.
Did you know that salmon is not only an excellent source of protein (for sculpting those muscles you work out in DanceFit Form classes- shameless plug, I couldn't resist!), but it contains an abundance of Omega 3 fatty acids, and many essential nutrients and vitamins including Vitamins A, C, D and E, niacin and Vitamin B-12. As you may have guessed it, those vitamins and omega 3's are key to beautiful, glowing skin too! I'm hoping you're getting the drift of this win- win- win situation here too, so let's make this baby!
RECIPE: 1 lb of Wild Caught Salmon
3 Tablespoons of Sir Kensington Dijonnaise (Find Sir Kensington products near you)
Salt and Pepper
Avocado Oil for the pan
1 Bunch Broccolini
4 Whole Carrots
4 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons Grass-Fed Butter
4 Garlic Cloves, smashed flat
1/4 cup water
4-6 Steamed Potatoes
Lemon Wedges for serving
For the Salmon: Preheat oven to 350. Drizzle a tiny bit of avocado oil on the bottom of a shallow roasting pan, and place the salmon in the center. Season very lightly with salt and pepper. Next, slather on Sir Kensington's Dijonaise like a good body cream, ensuring sides are well coated too. I'd love to tell you that there's more to do other than bake the salmon, but there's not. That's it my friends. Bake that sexy salmon for about 20-25 minutes depending on the thickness, until done. I recommend checking it at around 15 minutes to see how it's doing because cooking time may vary depending on your appliances.
For the Sides: In a very wide, shallow pan, sauté garlic in a bit of olive oil on very low heat for about 2 minutes (never ever heat olive oil on anything higher than low/medium heat because it will burn; aka not healthy). Next, add in your whole carrots (this is why you need an extra wide pan) and saute for another 2 minutes. Add your broccolini and water, and flip the carrots. Season with salt and pepper, then cover for 2 minutes more. Cook until desired tenderness, about 2-5 minutes. At the very end, add the butter and allow to melt. You will spoon this sauce over the vegetables and the steamed potatoes. Super- easy! Plate it all up together, make it look pretty and enjoy!
