Lemon Lake Trout with Asparagus

I don't know about you but my facebook feed is full of recipes from Tasty.com videos and I  love them.  They always look so awesome and are easy to remember (at least some of the ingredients). Today's recipe  for Lemon Lake Trout with Asparagus is adapted from the video that I watched.

This and That/ Bake Lake Trout and asparagus with lemon, anise, garlic and parsley in parchment paper.  Fish is moist, tender and full of flavour, asparagus has just the right amount of crunch to it.

Healthy Fruit Nut Bites ~ Fill The Cookie Jar

I can't believe that it is already August and soon it is time to go back to school.  Do you have kids that are going back to school... or maybe you are going to school this fall?  With school coming it is time to get cookies made and Back to School is our theme for this month's Fill the Cookie Jar.

Chia Mocha Shakeo Pudding

I have been trying to eat healthier this year.  The program that I have been using is called Beachbody and have been doing the 21 Day Fix.  My progress has been slow but I am losing weight and inches and my clothes are starting to feel better.  One thing I have been doing is having Shakeology every day.

Roasted Salmon with Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa

Today I decided to do some major housecleaning in my kitchen.  I haven't done that in a while.  One of things that I have been meaning to do is move my cookbooks.  I have them over the stove and they are getting mighty greasy.  So, I took them down, washed all the covers (good thing they are all hardback cookbooks) and moved them so that hopefully they won't get as greasy and dirty.

Of course when I take my cookbooks down, I have to read a few of them.  I found my cookbook called Weeknight Fresh + Fast by Kristine Kidd.  I had bought this one a while ago at a book sale at work and really hadn't read it yet.  Long story short I found this recipe for Roasted Salmon with Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa that sounded interesting.  I planned on making salmon for dinner and I had a grapefruit and avocado in the fridge.  Perfect....

Well this meal was fantastic.  I loved the flavors of the salsa ~ tangy and sour of the grapefruit, sweet of the avocado with a hint of hotness from the peppers.  It worked well with the salmon.  I did have to change the recipe slightly but I think the way I did it worked. I will write the ingredients that she had and then what I used.

Roasted Salmon with Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa

Ingredients:
3/4 lb salmon 1 1/2 inch thick (I used about 1 1/4 lb)
olive oil
course kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
Ancho chile powder (I didn't have this so didn't use) 
fresh lemon juice from a Meyer lemon about 1/2 lemon used (I add this ingredient)
1 large grapefruit
1 small, firm but ripe avocado - pitted peeled and cubed
1/2 large jalapeno chile ~ seeded and minced (I used about 1 tsp of a hot pepper)
3 tablespoon red onion diced (I used 1/4 cup)
2 tbsp fresh cilantro minced (I used 1 tsp ground)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice (I used fresh lemon juice)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place parchment paper on small cookie sheet.  Place salmon on parchment paper, skin down.
Brush flesh of salmon with olive oil.
Add salt and pepper to taste.  If you have ancho chile powder add it here.
Squeeze juice of 1/2 Meyer Lemon over salmon.  I just used my hand and then cut the lemon in slices and place over salmon.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 18 minutes until almost opaque in the center.  (Once it is easy to flake it is done).
While salmon is cooking, peel and remove white part of grapefruit.  Over small bowl, using a sharp knife cut between the membrane to remove grapefruit.  Squeeze membrane to get all the juice.  Cut grapefruit in small pieces.  
Add avocado, hot pepper, cilantro and lemon juice.  Mix gently.

To serve add salsa on  salmon and enjoy.

As you know I have been trying very hard to stay on the Whole 30 Program.  I wrote how things were going on this program over at the Daily Dish Magazine, so I won't go through that again.  But I did want to share the chicken recipe with all of you.  I found this recipe over at Mom's Recipe Collection .

Salsa either homemade or store bought - approximately 1 tbsp per breast - I used Salsa Me Krazy medium

In mixing bowl, add lime juice, lime peel, balsamic vinegar, pepper, rosemary and thyme.  Place chicken in ziplock bag and pour mixture over them.  Place them in the fridge to marinate for approximately 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place either aluminum foil or parchment paper in baking dish, place chicken in baking dish and pour marinate over each piece of chicken.  Bake for 30 -40 minutes until chicken is completely cooked.  Serve with Salsa.
