3/28/13-Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 29. March 2013 05:00


I created a quick and delicious meal with a healthy amount of ‘heart healthy fats’, and great flavor; Grilled Salmon with Red Wine Sauce.

Take a shallot (or finely chop a 1/8th cup of Vidalia onion), add ½ cup red wines (you choose), ¼ cup balsamic vinegar and reduce by half in volume by heating on high heat in a saucepan (watch so you don’t reduce too much).  Cool this and add 2 tbls. butter and 1 ½ tsp. fresh thyme leaves.  Blend.  Put into a freezer safe long container, wrapped in plastic wrap, and put into the freezer.

Grill the salmon *(either on a grill or in a grill mark pan on the stove.  Cook skin-side-down for 4 minutes, flip, remove skin, cook an additional 1 min. (for medium-rare.  Cook longer for well done meat).  Remove the red wine butter from the freezer (this can be used for steaks, chicken, asparagus, etc. for up to 3 months in the freezer, or 2 weeks in the fridge).  Cut a 1/8-1/4 inch pat and put on top of steaming meat (or melt and drizzle).

This butter just adds a different taste to your meat.  Use it for flavor; don’t go crazy with the butter.  Remember it does add more fats and calories to your overall dish.  It’s easy to go overboard with butter.  Just be mindful.
