Vacation is over. Has been over for a week and I can say that I ate too much, drank too much, spent too much and enjoyed every single second of it! Now it's time to eat a bit better, health wise that is. We usually eat healthy fare but we did overindulge with a few desserts and wine. And gin and tonics. And breakfast at Waffle House. Oh yeah.
Here is a meal that will do the trick to get my tummy in better shape. Sockeye Salmon is magic, right? If you eat grilled fish you'll be thin and feel great and I won't even need to exercise, right? Maybe that's something I read somewhere. Probably not though, probably wishful thinking ...LOL
If you have a grill pan (and I happen to have a very lovely Calphalon grill pan my sweet husband bought me years ago) then this will be easy-peasy. You simply brush olive oil on your fish, sprinkle on some thyme, salt and pepper and any other herb you want. Use sliced lemons for extra tang. Plus the lemons look cool.
This was excellent paired with buttery peas and a pearled couscous. Curtis Stone's recipe called for orzo but I had a craving for the pearled couscous.
This is an adaption from Curtis Stone's salmon recipe in his cookbook What's For Dinner
Expect healthy fare to be displayed here in the upcoming weeks.
