By now, you have probably heard of Meatless Monday. I’m not a person who eats a lot of meat, so taking part is easy to do and coming up with new recipe ideas is a fun challenge! I eat a mostly plant-based diet, although I love salmon and I eat it maybe twice a month. Organic, wild salmon is one meat source that I feel good about eating because it is totally good for you.
Lucky for me I live in Seattle, where fresh salmon is readily available and dependably delicious. Salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids which improve the cardiovascular system, neurotransmitter function, and just about every bodily process. Our internal organs (i.e., heart, kidneys, liver) as well as our external organs (skin, scalp, hair) work much better with adequate levels of Omega-3s. Researchers are still discovering the extensive health benefits of these guys, but I can tell you from my own “research” (eating it!) that it gives me mental clarity and sustainable energy.
So I decided after Meatless Monday, why not incorporate this fatty fish into Taco Tuesday?!
I don’t have exact measurements for the recipe as I threw this together on a whim, but you get the idea. Include some cervezas and make enough for you and some friends. Substitute as desired.
