Ginger Salmon Surprise
Today’s recipe comes to you from Nathalie King, personal trainer, cook extraordinaire, and creator of the Bikini Body Boot Camp.
Salmon is a delicious fish rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and a host of vitamins. It’s an excellent source of protein, easy to find and easy to cook, especially with this tasty recipe. This is a fun recipe to make if you want to impress a handle of friends and enjoy a delicious healthy meal that os simple to make. I strongly recommend you buy wild caught salmon even on your college budget. Farm raised salmon is toxic and not worth the money you’ll be spending on it.
