A chill is in the air… it’s almost down to the 50s here in the sunshine state! What better way to celebrate “cold” weather with a hearty, healthy meal of delicious cold water fish? Wild salmon has a higher fat content which makes it deliciously moist and chock full of omega-3’s. You get the best benefits and most intense flavor from leaving the skin on, and when baked on a cedar plank, this swimmer really soars to new heights. I served this with lemon-maple green beans and wild rice – the nutty/sweet flavors really complimented the glaze well, and kicked the health factor up a notch.

It’s no secret by now that I love Indian food. While Murg Makhani/Butter Chicken (recipe here) is my favorite Indian meal, sometimes I feel like dressing something up in a pretty little package. Whenever I want to add a little pizazz to a meal I’d usually make with chicken, I immediately think of Cornish Game Hen. It’s perfectly proportioned, flavorful, and damn cute on a plate. While watching one of my LOVES Bobby Flay on Food Network…
seriously!? THAT FACE
I was pleasantly surprised to see him deviating from his usual TexMex type cooking (which is BOMB by the way) and cooking up something with a little Indian flair. I immediately wrote the recipe down and decided to give it a try – and I’m glad I did! If you want a delicious, fancy shmancy Indian inspired meal, why don’t you try…
