One of the best sources of protein is fish. Most fish is low in fat, and the exceptions usually have a good form of fat: omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s, which are found in salmon, herring, and other fatty fish, may help protect against heart disease and other chronic conditions.
1-1⁄2 lb. salmon fillet (skin intact)
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. ground ginger
1⁄3 cup orange juice or one drop of DōTERRA Wild Orange with 1/3 alkaline water (in the store)
1 Tbsp. DōTERRA lime oil (in the store)
For marinade, whisk together honey, olive oil, ginger, orange or wild orange and lime oil and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos.
Arrange salmon fillets in a glass baking dish and pour marinade over fish. Cover and let marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Lightly oil grill and preheat. (Note: Real wood charcoal tastes best, but gas works fine. Avoid instant-light briquettes as they make food taste like lighter fluid! Aim for medium heat – if your grill lid has a thermometer built into the lid, it should read about 350 degrees F.)
Transfer salmon to a platter. Reserve marinade.
Place marinade in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, cook for one minute. (Note: This will kill off any bacteria and make it safe to baste the salmon while it’s cooking.)
Place the salmon, skin side down, on grill.
Cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon, basting every 5 minutes. (Note: To check for doneness, test the flesh with a fork. When done, it will begin to flake. If you cut into the salmon, meat should be opaque.)
1 drop doTERRA Black Pepper eo / loads of ground pepper
2 drops doTERRA Basil eo / or 1 large handful or basil
Mix olive oil and doTERRA Black Pepper, and put 1/3 aside.
Drizzle the rest over each
chicken. Grill over medium-high heat on the outdoor grill or on your
indoor grill pan 5-6 minutes each side. Remove to serving platter.
In the bowl of your food processor, toss in tomatoes,
garlic, basil eo, vinegar, and olive oil & doTERRA Black Pepper mix.
Pulse until your get a nice salsa consistency. Taste and see if you need
a pinch more salt and pepper. Spoon over chicken.
That's it! Super simple and delicious. I
forget there is a grilled chicken under all of that tomato goodness.
