It has been sometime since I’ve utilized my George Foreman grill. It has been just sitting in the corner practically gathering dust. Decided to put it to work  (well, after I cleaned it with a wet cloth), and made yours truly a nutritious meal. I went the omega fatty acids route.

I prepared my salmon (skin on) with a drizzle of olive oil, a seasoning of a pinch of salt and pepper and crushed garlic and set it aside. I did a quick three-minute pre-cook of the wedges of sweet potatoes in the microwave. Then, they were roasted in the oven at approximately 30 minutes at a temperature of 385 degrees until they were golden.

I made a blend of soy sauce, finely chopped root ginger, a squeeze of honey and dash of red wine vinegar. I warmed in the microwave for a minute. Then I removed garlic from salmon pieces in order to prevent burning. I made sure to spray Mr. Foreman. Salmon was grilled for approximately six minutes and then brushed with the sauce. A few capers were also added in sauce for acid and presentation.

I served my grilled Asian salmon with roasted sweet potato wedges and steamed  asparagus flavored with garlic olive oil.  With a squeeze of lemon juice I puckered up to an amazing and delicious dish.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
