Sweet + Spicy Saucy Orange Salmon
This entire meal will come together in under a half an hour, but you’ll receive praise as if you just cooked for many HOURS! So as far as I’m concerned, this is the ideal meal situation to be in.
Wild salmon contains an antioxidant called astaxanthin, this is what makes the wild salmon meat a beautiful dark pink to red color. It’s because of its natural diet!
Although wild-caught salmon typically costs a bit more than farmed salmon, it’s definitely worth its weight!
Wild-caught salmon has more vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
I typically only purchase salmon when I’m perusing the seafood counter and notice wild-caught salmon is on SALE….then it’s on!
Serve over brown rice, with a side of fresh chopped cucumbers with vinegar.
