Looking to make a healthy and quick dinner tonight? Try this holistic nutrition recipe for miso-glazed salmon. It takes less than 20 minutes and high in omega fatty acids, which are powerful anti-inflammatories, lower triglycerides, and contribute to lower levels of depression.
The highest quality Omega comes from fish. This is because it already contains DHA, which your body can readily use. DHA makes up 40% of the fatty acids in your brain. Land animals have Omega 3 as well, but less, and much less if they’re not fed natural diets. The best way to get enough is to eat fish at least three times per week; wild salmon being the best due to the lower levels of mercury.
Miso Glazed Salmon
6 4 oz portions of salmon
1 tsp peanut oil
6 sprigs cilantro
1 whole lime (sliced into 6 wedges)
2 tbsp Miso paste
4 tbsp water
1 tsp of soya sauce
1 tsp garlic, chopped
½ tsp ginger, finely grated
Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
Lay your salmon on a cutting board, brush each piece liberally with miso glaze (one side only).
In a preheated pan with a teaspoon of peanut oil sear each piece of salmon (glaze side down), for approximately 1 minute or until golden brown. Immediately turn over and place in a preheated 350-degree oven for approximately four minutes (or until desired level of doneness is reached, four minutes = medium).
Remove from pan and allow to rest for approximately one minute before plating.
Top with cilantro spring and a lime wedge.
Serve with a salad or lightly steamed or roasted vegetables.
