I just learned about a really cool method called Dry Brining.

In my previous blog about the importance of vitamin D, I think you'll enjoy this simple salmon recipe.

It goes something like this...

  • Take a nice Wild Caught Salmon filet, skin on.  
  • In a bowl blend together 1 part raw sugar and 3 parts sea salt.  
  • Toss in some fresh chopped herbs that appeal to you for salmon. 
 For example I used a 5-6 oz piece of salmon, 1/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup salt and about 1/3 cup fresh chopped dill.
  • In a glass dish spread a layer of the dry brine on the bottom.  
  • Place the piece of salmon on top then spread the remaining brine on top of the salmon and sort of press it into the flesh.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap then place in fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prep some veggies of your choice to go with the salmon.  
For example...I charred some broccolini to a crisp tender in a pan with a little olive oil sprinkled with an aromatic spice blend.  Very simple.
You may want to serve this with some brown rice, as well.  Cook the rice in a chicken stock for more flavor and add additional veggies here, such as diced carrots and fresh peas.
I think a side of fresh Pico De Gallo would work well with the salmon as a side. 

  • Remove the fish from the fridge after 30 minutes and dip the fish in a bowl of cool water to rinse off the brine mixture.  Pat dry with paper towel.
  • Heat a skillet to medium with a little olive oil seasoned with some salt and maybe some dried herbs...just anything to impart more layers of flavor.
  • Place fish, flesh side down into skillet and when the fish cooks about halfway up flip and cook skin side down. 
Serve alongside the veggies and you will have a flavorful, satisfying meal that was prepared in the most unique and simple method.

Enjoy this Vitamin D rich salmon!

Sylvia Anton with The Holistic Garden has been coaching me for a year about adequate supplementation to my meal plan.

After assessing my current health, during a Health History Assessment, recommendations were made to assist me in providing the most effective solution(s) while taking into consideration my lifestyle and what comfortably fits into my schedule so that I can continue to commit the progression of my own health to myself.

Over the past year this is the only change I have made so there is no doubt in my mind, my improved blood work is due to the supplements Sylvia has recommended along with her careful guidance.

Thank you, Sylvia, for your Health Coaching, guidance and care.
