Welcome to our Recipe Corner!
Here we hope you will find some good tips and recipes to help with keeping your lifestyle healthy. Here at PA Home Care we hope to help with encouraging healthy eating habits and support our clients with their dietary needs.
Some things to remember when meal planning are generally;
Eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean sources of protein
Choose foods that are low in added sugars
Limit salt intake
Try out the following recipe which we hope you will love as much as we do! Salmon is a great source of Omega 3, (the “good” fat) you can bake it, broil it, or grill it!
Sweet ‘n’ Hot Glazed Salmon
1 1/2 cups apricot nectar
1/3 cup chopped dried apricots
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (3/4 pound) salmon filet without skin
- Preheat your oven’s broiler, and grease a broiling pan.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the apricot nectar, dried apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced by about half. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Remove 1/4 cup of the glaze for basting, and set the remaining aside.
- Place the salmon filet on the greased broiling pan, and brush with glaze. Broil 3 inches from the heat for 8 to 12 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Gently turn over once during cooking, and baste frequently during the last 4 minutes. Serve with remaining glaze.
Serve with Brown Rice and enjoy!
