Recipe du Jour December

Everyone's getting on the immune-boosting bandwagon. Shockingly, Kellogg's labeled their Cocoa Krispies as a great way to build immunity, despite the second ingredient being sugar and containing partially hyrdrogenated oil (trans fat). Under FDA pressure, Kellogg's has since removed this erroneous claim.

Like we did with our Immune-Boosting Broth in November, Salmon Stimpanata is another immune-boosting recipe sure to excite. It has been a staple of a local restaurant in Highwood, IL called Washington Gardens. Here's why it is a great immune-boosting dish:
  • Salmon - loaded with vitamin D, omega-3 fats, protein, an zinc
  • Orange Juice/Lemon - vitamin C
  • Red Onion - quercetin and other flavanoids
Not only does the presentation look beautiful, but it is incredibly delicious. Even fish haters will love it because there is no fishy taste. For those of you wanting to make it at home:

Salmon Stimpanata

-2 lb. salmon filets, cut into 4 pieces
-1 c. fresh orange juice
-juice of one lemon
-1 medium to large red onion, thinly sliced

Marinate salmon filets in the next three ingredients for ½ hour or more. In a pan (so that the salmon is completely covered with liquid- add a little water if needed), bring the liquid to a boil. The, cover immediately and turn off the heat (leaving the pan on top of the burner). When the salmon is no longer translucent, it is ready to serve! Serve with lemon wedges and orange and kiwi slices. SERVES: 4

SIDE DISHES: serve with steamed broccoli and wild rice pilaf.
