Baked Asian Style Salmon

Salmon cooked in the healthiest way…

It’s been a very hectic week, tons of work to do as I am attending a conference next week. Preparing the poster of my work, trying to collect more data and lots of experiments, looking forward to a much crazier week ahead. The conference is going to be in Vancouver, so excited and can’t wait…

It’s that time of the year again when I will be seen drooling over the pretty flowers and garden. I’ve already made a few trips to most of the garden center in my location and have bought quite a few plants as well. I feel so relaxed and peaceful when I am among the plants and flowers. Last weekend, I’ve started with my veggie gardening, I was on the cloud nine when I found out that my new house has a raised veggie bed, it has a covering too so it can be covered during winter. I had planted some of the seeds in the veggie bed, while others I planted in the egg cartons. I had saved a few egg cartons as they make a great seed trays, it’s eco friendly and you can save some money on buying pots. Poke a hole in each tray, add soil and put the seeds in the middle, cover with some more soil and wait for it to sprout. Once the seeds germinate and has grown a few centimeters, you could transfer to the veggie bed or bigger pots.

Here are the flowers from my garden, I can’t pick a favorite among these as I love each and every one of them. They never fail to put a smile on my face!

This is a very healthy salmon recipe that I adopted from the cookbook by Rafi Fernandez. It tasted very mild yet flavorful. A great recipe for weight watchers and for everyone.
