Orange and Mint Summer Salmon
I'm so excited about this amazingly tasty and beautiful summer salmon recipe that I curated specifically for Mint Studios this week. I love this recipe because it's simple, healthy and packed full of omega 3's. Omega 3's have been show to reduce cholesterol and inflammation and has also been show to help with symptoms of depression as well as increase focus. So, eat up!
Serves about 2
1 lb wild salmon
1 whole orange
1/2 white onion
1 yellow zucchini
1 TBSP grass-fed butter
8-10 mint leaves
Splash of white wine (optional)
2 TBSP water
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat cast iron pan with grass fed butter
Chop onion and sauté until translucent in pan
Slice zucchini and add to the pan. Sauté for 1-2 minutes
Place salmon on pan with skin side down.
Slice orange into quarters and squeeze juice into pan. Place orange slices in pan too.
Pour 2 TBSP of water in pan along with a splash of white wine.

Enjoy! xo Darby
