Is anyone else still(a whole 3 days later) trying to eat a little healthier?

Between the long Holiday weekend and me desperately trying not to give into every single culinary temptation here in New York (and there are a lot of them!) “healthy” is the name of the game this week.

Blueberry Glazed Salmon

I thought I would work out here and be walking non-stop right away, but it was as though I somehow just glossed right over the kids in that little day dream scenario. And the fact that Coco says her legs will fall off after 1 block isn’t helping anything. Therefore, I am just taking cabs back and forth from their camps and classes all day long. I need to figure out the subway system asap. For the hundred times I have been here, I have only taken the subway a few times and with people who knew what was happening.

Blueberry Glazed Salmon

Since there isn’t enough walking and exercising happening, the eating (um, outside all of the tacos I have been shoveling in) has been pretty healthy. And I f I was at home this week, I would be making dishes like this one.

Blueberry Glazed Salmon

A sweet blueberry honey glaze on a tender piece of salmon is delectable as is. I also like to serve it with this awesome carrot salad (just minus the chicken) and you have an entire incredible meal. Enjoy!

Recipe: Blueberry Honey Glazed Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1 pound salmon filet (about four 4 ounces portions)
  • Blueberry Honey Glaze
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • kosher salt
  • optional: This Carrot Salad (minus the chicken)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium high.
  2. In the jar of a blender, combine all of the blueberry honey glaze componenets until smooth.
  3. On a sheet pan covered in foil, set the filets directly on the foil.
  4. Generously Glaze the salmon filets with the sauce and set the rest of the sauce aside.
  5. Place the sheet of foil with the glazed salmon filets directly onto the grill. Cook the salmon for 10-12 minutes or until the fish is just barely cooked through. Add a bit more sauce to the tops of the filets as the blueberry glaze can turn a bit of a greyish color (not pretty).
  6. I served the fish with this carrot salad (minus the chicken) and extra sauce on the side.

Preparation time: 15 minute(s)

Cooking time: 12 minute(s)
