Rosemary-Lemon Crusted Wild Salmon with Maple Glaze

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.

Thanksgiving Morning: Cranberry and Pumpkin Scones with Whipped Maple Butter

By  now most everyone in the United States is up and elbows deep in some delicious turkey day preparations.  My family’s Thanksgiving tradition generally involves no breakfast, me taking over any heavy lifting duties, as well as about 4 bottles of champagne for the cooks (of which there are usually 2 – you do the math).  This year we decided to be smart about it and make something simple yet filling and delicious to fill our tummies before the main event begins.  After just finishing my first bites and almost licking the butter container clean, I can tell you that these will definitely become a new part of our family tradition – how about yours?
