Salmon Shocker


I usually cook salmon when I am trying to be healthy and when I am sick of chicken………… Somehow it always ends up that I eat a few bites and give the rest to our great dane Scout (he LOVES salmon).  I don’t know if it’s the texture, the idea of fish, or the color but for some reason I am not swooning over the pink swimmer like everyone else is.  Self magazine sends me healthy recipes every now and then and of course I cringed when I saw that the main recipe was  a salmon dish.  Well, I was trying to be healthy, again, and I decided to try this one out and I actually devoured the entire thing!  I hope you guys try it out, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe featured in Self, enjoy!
