Our gourmet meal for the week was a healthy one. I wanted to include Salmon in our menu because its packed with Omega 3-fatty acids that are good for the heart, and for the brain. It may be a bit pricey but its nutritional content certainly makes it worth it. I thought this would be a better splurge than on steaks or any other beef meat.
These two dishes combined made for some healthy, flavorful fare that cost more or less P300 with a serving size that fed three adults plus one toddler in our home. My little Gabbie couldn't get enough of it!
|Only two Salmon slabs left! I snapped up a pic before it was completely gone!|
Note that the Salmon recipe in this dish was derived from this website:
but I replaced the lime juice with dalandan (go local!) and I cooked it in our turbo broiler instead of in a broiler pan. Worked just as well!
This is worth a try, Mommas!
