As we enjoyed this meal, it occurred to us that it might be the healthiest combination of food ever! Not that it really mattered, because it was quite tasty and we would have eaten every bite even it it was chock full of benzene and trans fats. Well, not really…we do try to avoid foods that will give you cancer and a heart attack.
We found some farm-raised Norwegian King Salmon at the local Whole Foods, which, although not wild-caught, is “raised in carefully monitored, low-density pens without antibiotics, pesticides or added growth hormones” according to Whole Foods Standards. It is a mild-flavored salmon with a good fat content…yum! Since we are in Santa Fe, I wanted to give it a bit of Southwestern flair, so I put together a simple chipotle-lime glaze and added some rosemary from the yard (which is the only herb other than sage that has survived the rabbits.) The glaze has a kick to it, but doesn’t overwhelm the delicate flavor of the salmon. This we roasted and served with Sweet Potatoes and Kale (recipe here).
