Thai Inspired Salmon

Delicious oven roasted salmon beautifully paired with a ginger and lemongrass Thai inspired sauce. I’ll just start of by saying that this recipe is all about the sauce! The gingery, lemongrassiness (it’s not a word I know – but let’s go with it) of the sauce lends itself to being the perfect complement for a fish dish. But before I get onto telling you guys about this glorious sauce, let’s talk about the salmon that is also a star in its own right in this dish. Salmon, as I’m sure we all know is one of the world’s superfoods. They are notoriously known for being high in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B12 and D. These benefits along with so many other nutritional factors like being high in protein and amino acids, makes salmon a powerhouse ingredient in the food industry.

Coconut Curry Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

It is really winter (sigh). Temperatures of 40°F, sun sets at 4pm and layer upon layer….upon layer of clothes, its cold out…did I say that already?…yup…its winter. While to the Britts it’s not that bad but for me… an island girl, this is like being in Antarctica. Ok maybe that is a bit extreme but point is its cold, and what better to warm you up then a bowl of coconut creamy, curry spiced butternut squash soup,  can you say yum! I use to be one of those people who thought that soups were not filling; as my mom would say ‘water doesn’t stay on a hill’. But the heartiness of the butternut squash itself makes this dish very wholesome, and this is the soup that changed my mind on all soups. I find that pre-cooking the squash saves time and makes the process simpler since peeling it can be difficult. Read my suggestion on the best way to easily peel and pre-cook your butternut squash. So if you are feeling that cold winter air…or…
