Salmon with Warm Black Bean Salsa

82460

When Whole Foods Market asked me if I would do one of my television cooking segments for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” on Alaskan Salmon, I said, “Yes, please.” We eat salmon at least once a week at my house. Salmon is called a “superfood” because it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, a type of fat that seems to decrease the risk of heart disease. It’s also a prime source of protein and contains vitamins A and B. This salsa works great with the dish featuring “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray”. Serve the salsa warm or at room temperature.

Watch my segment, Friday, July 9th at 11:30 central time.

This recipe was featured on NBC 13 Daytime Alabama for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter this week. My kids love lettuce wraps so this is perfect to serve at my house and only 3.5 grams of fat. It’s also very economical, only $6.93 for the recipe or $1.73 per serving. Feel free to substitute steak, chicken or shrimp for the pork in this recipe.

Delicious and Healthy Easter or Passover Side Dish: Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini

I made this recipe last year on NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” for Passover and Easter, and it was a hit. This Stuffed Zucchini recipe was one of my kid’s favorites (believe it or not). This recipe for Stuffed Zucchini only has 150 calories per serving, 2.g grams of fat and only 13 carbs, and the cost per recipe is only $7.03 (for 4 people, very economical for fresh veggies).

My youngest son, Zachary said, “This tastes almost like a vegetable pizza.” I have to admit. He was right.  So, if you’re looking for a new healthy side dish for Passover, Easter or for anytime during the year, try these. I bet you will be pleasantly surprised. It’s really easy too. I promise!
