Tickle Me Pink

Something’s fishy.

It’s probably the fact that you’ve been sitting on your computer Facebook stalking your ex’s new “girlfriend” while waiting for the phone to ring hoping to avoid another Saturday night with Ben, Jerry and a third bowl of their Phish Food.

Skip the stress marinade and pressure stew.  Rock the boat and try something new.

We at doB have all been there. Trust me. I’ve felt like that worm squirming to get off the hook.  Another broken heart, another bag of M & M’s and a post break-up paunch so big I could snap the line. It was time to stop drowning, get out of the water and start cookin’.

Focus on your health, and good things will follow.

I decided to tackle fish in the doB kitchen. Salmon, along with many other benefits, decreases cardiovascular problems, improves mood and clears skin, all because of its strong Omega-3 properties.  With an easy herb paste and a cholesterol lowering coating of sliced almonds, I knew my recipe would help me become catch of the day.  Give a woman a fish and you feed her for one lonely day. Teach a woman how to cook fish, and you feed her and her friends for a healthy lifetime.

A reel expert can tackle anything. So let his calls ring off the hook.  Your healthy confidence will eventually lure the “big catch.”

Eat smart and you won’t need to swim upstream.

Almond Salmon with Herb Paste

4 Fresh Salmon Fillets

1/4 cup Fresh Basil (stemmed)

1/2 cup Fresh Dill

2 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1-2 Peeled Cloves of Garlic (I press mine before putting them in)

4 Tbs. Slivered Almonds

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine Basil, Dill, Olive Oil and Garlic.  Puree using food processor. Combine until creamy.  Add a little water if necessary.
  3. Spoon/Brush the creamy paste over each piece of salmon (the non-skin side).
  4. Sprinkle top with almonds.
  5. Bake (skin side down) for about 18-20 minutes or until easily flaked with a fork.

Garnish with a lemon
