Yummy Mummy Monday: Wasabi Salmon

It’s the first Yummy Mummy recipe of 2015! Now that we’re through the holidays it’s time to get back to meals that don’t involve turkey. Or stuffing. Or… you fill in the blank. Since new year resolutions are probably in effect (for now) I thought it would be good to make the first recipe of the year a healthy one. I’ve been on the hunt for new meal ideas and recently tried this recipe from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen. I loved it but liked the idea of giving the fish a bit of a kick, so I switched it up a little. Plus, I spoke with a friend who told me about the good work going on at globalsalmoninitiative.org/en and other salmon farms, so it felt a good time to step up and do my part for sustainable eating. To kick off 2015 here’s a delicious salmon meal that’s packed with flavour and nutrition.

Yummy Yummy Recipe: Wasabi Salmon

1 lb wild salmon (salmon steaks are great for this recipe)
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tbsp paprika
1 tsp coconut sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp wasabi paste or horseradish

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine the spices and sugar to create a dry rub.
2. Coat the salmon with the dry rub.
3. Put salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for approx. 20- 30 minutes (this will depend on how thick the cut of salmon is and how quick your oven cooks, so keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t overcook & dry out).
4. Either rub the wasabi/ horseradish over the cooked salmon or serve on the side.
Serve with steamed veggies and fresh avocado slices for a fresh & delicious meal (the avocado balances the richness of the salmon and adds a light flavour to the meal).
