This recipe is super-easy.  It’s what I make when I come home late and want dinner on the table in 15-20 minutes.

For 2

2 salmon darnes/fillets/steaks, ideally wild or organic
A large clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
Tamari Sauce (see “larder & shopping” for where to buy)

1. Brush fish on both sides with the sauce, smear with the garlic.
2. Grill on medium heat for around 5 minutes flesh side up and 1-2 minutes skin side up until very slightly browned (watch it when grilling the skin side, it goes from not done to burnt very quickly).

Serve with:

  • Steamed green or runner beans drizzled with fresh lemon juice or a large salad of mixed leaves, cherry tomatoes and sliced red onion drizzled with my home-made mediterranean or Asian salad dressing or a little fresh lemon juice and a glug of extra virgin olive oil.   These accompaniments are suitable for a paleo (stoneage) or ketogenic eating diet.
  • If you don’t want to lose any weight you could also add a medium steamed or baked sweet potato (just scrub, slice and steam with the skin on for extra nutrients) or some baby boiled white potatoes.  Carbohydrates (grains, potatoes, sweet foods) are weight gainers.

Why this recipe is good for you:
Oily fish is a great source of omega 3 essential fats needed for weight management, beautiful skin and good brain function.  Eating fresh rather than tinned fish is best because the plastic lining of tins contains bisphenol A (BPA).  Fats in the food absorb BPA.  BPA is linked by numerous studies to sex hormone imbalance (eg PMS, low libido, endometriosis, fibroids) and life-threatening diseases of the breast and prostate.   Greens are a rich source of magnesium, which helps the liver clear natural and man made toxins from the body.  common symptoms of magnesium deficiency include stress, wheezing in asthmatics, and sluggish bowels.
