Why you are going to love Baked Spicy Salmon and Sweet Potato Kale Hash
Don't you just love it when salmon is cooked perfectly and just melts in your mouth. Not only is this dish tasty, but it is also rich in nutrients. Wild salmon is rich in omega – 3 Fatty Acids which can help reduce inflammation, reduce blood pressure and a good heart and brain protector, according to a research article by Gammone et al, in a publication by the National Institute of Health.
Sweet potatoes are high in many vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin A. Kale is another super food that is high in anti-oxidants, fiber and iron. We also have loads of garlic in this recipe (we know shocking…right?!?) and this will at least keep the vampires away… no really it is great to build up your immunity in this cold and flu season.
How to make Homemade Sweet Chili Sauce
We don’t know about you but we find sweet chili sauce way too sweet for us and we are trying to cut down on sugar so we made our own with fresh red chili peppers, ginger, garlic- of course and lots of it, tamari sauce, lime, orange, sesame oil and just a pinch of sugar alternative of choice to balance the flavors. Seriously this chili sauce is to die for. We are ready to start spooning it over everything. By the way, this homemade chili garlic sauce was fabulous over rice noodle stir fry the next day…so make extra!
You may be saying kale??? We so don’t do kale. Then, go ahead and exchange with spinach or other leafy green vegetable of choice. Kale, just happens to be on sale at our market.
