Salmon and Science

My friend gave me this recipe and it is a keeper!

It is a perfect low carb dinner and could probably be used if you're flushing your fat away.

From Muscle & Fitness, April 2006 (thankfully, I didn't have to actually read the magazine. The recipe was torn out already. :P).

Spicy Salmon

1 purple onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. canned chipotle peppers
1 T. minced fresh cilantro
2 C. baby spinach
4 4 oz. salmon fillets
Salt and pepper to taste
Lime slices to garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Mix onion, garlic, peppers, cilantro and tomatoes together in a medium bowl.

Cut four 12 X 12 inch pieces of foil and place 1/2 C. spinach in the center of each. Top spinach with one salmon fillet, then 1/4 of the tomato mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bring the two opposite sides of foil together and fold over to seal. Fold remaining two sides to seal.

Place packets seam side up on baking sheet; bake 15-20 minutes. For rare salmon, cook 12-15 minutes. Open packets carefully, allowing steam to escape; serve garnished with lime slices if desired.

This video was a perfect supplement and a perfect end to our final chapter in the Apologia Physical Science book. It is very well done and sent shivers down my spine. We (humans) are very small in light of the universe.

Thankfully, our Creator cares about each one of us and knows the number of hairs on our head. Not only does He care for us, we were created in His image and for His glory.

Donna, there is no way I can join that challenge. I can't read two books/week and keep my laundry up. I loved that ladies list though, great resource.

Hope to try your salmon recipe soon. DD#2 and I prepared grilled honey-glazed salmon w/a spicey tomato relish for dinner last night! So yummy and there are leftovers, I mean *planned-overs*

I didnt sign up for the challenge either, but I do sort through my summer and *assign* books to read for each category.

How are you doing on the re-entry into eating after the fast?

Donna has me totally interested in Ann Louise Gittleman.
