The folks at Sizzlefish were kind enough to send me over a sampler package for me to try out and I couldn’t be more excited!
I absolutely love fish but I hardly ever get to make it, so you can imagine how excited I was when this offer came up!
I immediately dove into the Atlantic Salmon which is my favoorite fish of all time.
Salmon’s nutritional benefits are endless. It’s rich in Omega-3 fatty acids (which offer numerous protective effects for the heart), contains high quality protein and a host of vitamins (including A, D, B and E) and minerals (including calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium).
Plus, in my opinion, it’s not a super fishy-tasting fish so it’s great for people just getting started on the fish bandwagon.
I actually came up with the base of this dish before I knew how I was going to prepare the salmon…it’s funny how that works sometimes isn’t it?
This farro perfectly compliments that salmon – packed with steamed sweet potatoes, edamame and sautéed mushrooms, it stood up perfectly to the maple-flavored salmon.
Definitely a fish worth trying out! And luckily, Sizzlefish is offering a promo going on for October (so hurry and use it before it expires!). Just use code OCTBONUS for $10 off all orders, and shipping is now included.
