I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I DON’T LIKE FISH. I found one recipe that I loved because it made it taste like chicken (Sweet Teryaki Salmon) but every one I’ve tried since then is so salty … and the texture, yuck.
But, alas, thanks again to the most awesome healthy chef, Sammie Kennedy, I have found and adapted another way to cook it that is SO delicious. I contemplated not putting this recipe up until I could take another photo without the solidified fat. But I decided to keep it because it shows all the healthy fish oils you’re ingesting when you eat salmon. This stuff is like gold!
So enjoy the fish, enjoy the fat (your body sure will), and enjoy your day 🙂
