Continuing on our theme from the last blog (“What is a Cleanse?”) I wanted to share a really, really important tidbit about cleansing: You do NOT need to go into hiding when you are cleansing!
Cleansing with Little Green is FUN and can (and should!) be done in community. The more healthy eating becomes popular and essential to our wellbeing, the more your guests and friends are excited to be introduced to delicious, elegant, good-for-you dishes. You can throw an entire “cleanse-worthy” dinner party without them even noticing…one that is meat-free, high-nutrient, packed with flavor, and interesting.
I’m really excited to share this recipe with you. It is a “WOW” factor dish every. single. time. You can make it over flavored turmeric rice if you aren’t worrying about grain-free, or, you can serve it over equally-flavored cauliflower rice if you’re looking for an easy-to-digest, grain-free dinner dish. (Photo shown with turmeric rice.) Either way, your guests will be floored, and the salmon will melt in your mouth and leave you feeling satisfied, happy, and healthy.
One caveat: I am a big promoter of wild salmon. For environmental reasons, I’ve always felt this was important, and there is also scientific evidence that wild-caught salmon has something extra. Here, however, I used antibiotic-free farmed salmon, because for whatever reason I found that it was more moist, more delicate, and more absorbent of the miso-coconut flavor (not to mention easier on the wallet.) So, there you go: I admit my failure to use the “it” kind of fish this time.
One last thing: you know when you have that friend who just turns out magic every time she hits the kitchen? I want to shout out my chickie Ingrid, who is that person. Someday I may just make a cookbook called “Ingrid’s Cooking.”
