My pants are officially cutting off my circulation. I went to take off my skinny jeans the other night and had to peel them off only to reveal “indents” in my skin where they were. Oh geez. I blame it on the overload of salt I have been consuming. Here’s the thing-I buy healthy food, I eat healthy food, but I CANNOT resist the bad stuff when it is in front of me calling my name. Four holiday parties in six days…Need I say more? Anyway, I was looking for a quick and super easy food savior(!) to get me out of my sodium hangover and BBQ Salmon was born. Ridiculously easy and making me feel better already with all its antioxidant powers….
Here’s What You Need: (For 1 so adjust accordingly)
4oz fresh salmon filet
Non-stick spray (look for organic)
Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to broil. Marinate the fish in bbq sauce so it is completely covered. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray and then add the salmon, shaking off some of the access sauce. Mix about 3 TBS of bbq sauce with about 1 tsp of brown sugar. Broil for the fish for five minutes. Brush on the brown sugar and bbq sauce combo and broil for 5-8 minutes more. Serve with an optional sprig of cilantro. Diiiiive in!
*I used homemade leftovers I had, but feel free to use store bought organic.
Okay, I don’t know many kids who are crazy about salmon, but it is worth a shot! It may help to mix this in with mashed potatoes or stir into rice or orzo. If that doesn’t work, don’t feel guilty about a mac n’ cheese with broccoli day!
