Sometimes you come across a recipe that you just know will blow you away, this is it! I often pursue through the major publications to seek out new dishes to try. I read some and think, why would anyone make this, but, when I saw this recipe on Food&Wine.com, my mouth instantly began to water and so I started my shopping list. Fresh salmon is such a treat to have in the summer and I am constantly looking for new ways to enjoy this delicious fish. This simple recipe combines pickled ginger with salmon and a balsamic reduction. I served my ginger roasted salmon with a grilled corn and watercress salad, making this meal the ultimate summer delight.

All opinions are mine alone. #AquafinaSparkling #CollectiveBiasMy new life in California is so different than my routine in New York. Since my recent move to LA LA Land, I have enjoyed taking advantage of the warm weather, radiant sunshine, sandy beaches, and the unfortunate traffic. Driving from place to place, instead of walking has seriously cut into my once active lifestyle. As a result, my step counter has been pinging me non-stop to exercise more. So I had to do something about it.
One of the first things I learned from my husband is that the best salmon comes from Alaska. I've listened to numerous stories about of his days as a commercial salmon fisherman and dipnetting experiences back in Anchorage. Getting fresh Alaskan Salmon in the "lower 48" does come at a cost, but it is totally worth it. I found this beautiful piece of fish at Whole Foods to make pan seared Alaskan salmon with fresh dill, lemon, and capers.
No one likes a boring salad, so why not mix it up a bit! I tend to love salads all year long, but summer time is perfect season to enjoy a delicious salad packed with vitamins and nutrients. I also am more active in the summer, so I tend to get hungry often. Salad can be a light snack, or with a little help, it can also be a filling meal.
