I’ve never caught a fish, but I did catch a kid!
I love traveling up to North Carolina and North Georgia during the Summer months. I love to hike and kayak up there often with family and friends. It’s become quite a tradition over the years. One particular Summer, someone had convinced me to fish on one of the rivers up there. I was excited to fish, because there were very few times in my life that I had the chance, and actually had caught anything. My friend and I happily loaded all of our fishing gear up and set our mission upon a local fishing hot spot. As we were fishing on this beautiful crystal clear river, there happened to be some young kids not too far from us swimming nearby. As I was casting my line in hopes of catching a really nice size trout, I waited patiently for something really big to bite. After only 5 minutes of fishing, sure enough I had a tremendous size tug on my line! I started screaming at my friend…”I caught something!” He came running over and kept yelling at me to reel in my line. So I did! As I was reeling in my line, I noticed the line was extremely heavy! Was it a giant trout? No it wasn’t! I heard a young kid screaming as I was reeling in what I thought to be a huge Olympic size fish. To my surprise, it wasn’t a prize fish at all! Instead it was the kid I was reeling in! My fishing hook got caught onto the bathing suit of the kid! Needless to say, I never caught my trout that day!
So what about Salmon? Many of us live too far from Alaska to catch our own Wild Salmon. But, a lot of us do have grocery stores that sell it. Salmon is loaded in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B, E, B6, A and calcium. It’s wonderful at protecting your heart, improving blood vessel function and great for rheumatoid arthritis. So what not give it a try?
I came home from a long day of work and I put together this really quick and simple Wild Salmon dish over a bed of Organic Romaine. This dish only takes 7 minutes at most. It’s quite tasty too!
3 ounces of Wild Salmon
2 cups of Organic Romaine Lettuce
2 sprays of Organic Non-Stick Olive Oil
3 sprays of Liquid Aminos by Bragg (Soy Sauce Alternative)
Make sure your Wild Salmon is defrosted the night before. Wash Salmon under filtered water. Dry with napkin. Cut into small cube sized bites. I try and leave the skin on if possible. Heat your Wok, or small pan on medium high heat. Spray pan with Non-Stick Organic Olive Oil Spray. While pan is being heated, wash off your lettuce with filtered water. Dry your lettuce with napkin. Place chopped lettuce onto a plate. Take your salmon and place in heated skillet. Cook until most pink is gone. Place cooked salmon on bed of lettuce. Spray Liquid Aminos over the top. Ready and serve!
Note: Some people like to eat their salmon raw, or close to raw. I usually will cook mine all the way. Please buy “ONLY WILD SALMON.”
Purpose of Dish: This meal is beneficial for anyone battling inflammation in the body. Salmon works wonders for people who are suffering from bladder issues, digestive problems, hormone imbalances, depression issues, joint problems, skin problems and weight issues.
