Food for Thought – June 25, 2013

Hope all you fathers had a great Father’s Day. Billy got cards and calls from Ken and Larry and a beautiful card from Char.

Here is a quick, good and good for you meal I’ve had for many years.

Salmon with Wilted Greens

1 lb. fresh or frozen salmon fillets (thawed)

1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. Asian salad dressing, such as sesame ginger

6 cups torn mixed salad greens

1 medium orange, peeled and sectioned

1) Rinse salmon; pat dry. Cut into 4 pieces. Broil on greased unheated rack of broiler pan 4-inches from heat for 6-9 minutes, or until salmon begins to flake easily. Halfway through broiling brush with 1 Tbsp. dressing. Cover; keep warm.

2) In salad bowl, combine greens and orange sections. In large skillet, bring remaining dressing to boil. Boil gently, uncovered, 1 minute. Remove from heat. Pour over greens; toss.

3) Divide greens among 4 serving plates. Top with salmon. Serve immediately.

Serves: 4 at 397 calories each.

The following recipe is from the Jell-o Co.

Later with coffee serve this tart-sweet pie from Eagle Brand.

This last thought from Dona M. Maroney.

Angel of the morning,

Guilde me through the day.

Keeping watch in the nighttime,

Please take my fears away.
