Salmon with Kale & Rice...

A few years back after trying Salmon for the very first time I became addicted to the smooth flavor of this great fish. Seems when my husband and I go out for dinner it is the only item on the menu I am drawn to. I finally tried making it at home and the recipe that follows is my all time fave....Its loaded with healthy benefits and the flavor of the kale adds that little extra little kick!!!

I hope you like it as much as we do, and add it to your favorite list as well.

Salmon with Kale & Rice:

4 T lime juice, separated
1 teas  dried cilantro
1 T honey
2 salmon fillets
1/2 lb raw kale chopped
3-4 scallions diced
2 cups of cooked brown rice
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
kosher Salt

Whisk 2 T of lime juice with 1 T honey, add the 1 teas of dried cilantro and a pinch of salt to make a  marinade.

Pour the marinade over the salmon and let it sit while preparing the rice. ( I use the premade cups of Uncle Ben's rice for convenience, so let salmon marinade for about 10 minutes if you use this step.)

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. add the kale, 1 T of the lime juice and a pinch or two of salt. Cook for about a minute until kale is wilted.

Add the scallions, brown rice, cilantro, the remaining T of lime juice and another pinch of salt. Combine everything well allowing the flavors to merge. Pour into a bowl and set aside to now cook the salmon...

Wipe skillet clean. Reheat the skillet over medium-high heat and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Cook the salmon 2-3 minutes on each side depending on thickness of the pieces, longer if pieces are thicker.. After  flipping to second side  pour any leftover marinade over the fillets. Cook until the salmon is tender and done. Serve on top of the rice and enjoy!

Easy Chocolate covered strawberries...

Did you know that you could use old Styrofoam egg cartons when making chocolate covered strawberries? They makes the task quick,  and painlessly easy to clean up! With the abundance of strawberries now in season I urge you to give it a try...Ummmmm good.

Making chocolate covered strawberries. Make sure you clean egg cartons well before hand!

2 lbs. strawberries
12 oz. semi sweet GF chocolate chips
1 T oil

Wash strawberries and let dry on paper towels on a cookie rack earlier in day.

Mix the chocolate chips and oil together. Melt in a microwave safe bowl in microwave on 20 second intervals stirring after each until melted.

Spoon a bit of melted chocolate in the bottom of each "egg" holder, add a strawberry to each cup, and cover with more chocolate. Place in freezer or refrigerator until chocolate hardens and Enjoy...
