One of the Healthiest Meals on the Planet

Created on Thursday, 04 February 2016 09:31

Last night we fixed one of the healthiest meals on the planet- Honeyed Salmon with Gomasio crust over Brown Rice with a Ginger/Soy marinade- all cooked on a Cedar Plank over a low fire on the BBQ grill. Yeow-zahs! Gomasio is made from ground sesame seeds mixed with sea salt. Sesame seeds are probably the oldest condiment known to man. With their nutty taste and crunch, they contain a rich assortment of minerals that have a cholesterol-lowering effect in humans, have been proven to prevent high blood pressure, and protect the liver. Their ultra-high copper content has been known for reducing some pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis. Salmon, with its rich concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids for control of the body's inflammatory processed and improved brain function, is one of the safest fish to consume. Cooking it very slowly on a cedar plank retains the moisture of the fish, and brings out more of the individual flavors.  Brown rice- rich in fiber and selenium- substantially reduces the risk of colon cancer. All together, this meal was not only delicious, but made us feel so completely satisfied and healthy when we had cleaned our plates! A simple, worthy preparation to undertake, with many, many rewards.
