Okay we had a yummy (and healthy) dinner the other night and all my kids loved it, so it’s worth sharing. Like all healthy meals, it’s pretty simple. Here is what you will need:
Note: one thing you should know about me is that I don’t really follow recipes and I make things up all the time – sometimes they turn out and sometimes they don’t and this one was a hit with the whole family.
A package of round wraps
One 7 oz can of boneless/skinless Atlantic salmon, drained (give the juice to your cat – they will love you forever)
Dash of Worcestershire sauce (reduced sodium)
Some lite mayo made with canola oil (use just enough to stick it together)
Fresh chives from the herb garden (I use scissors and cut them into little pieces) – probably 2-3 Tablespoons
Minced garlic - probably 1-3 cloves
Finely chopped white onion (about ¼ cup)
Egg white slightly beaten (optional)
I mixed it all together then fill the wrapper (it doesn’t take much) then seal them in a half-moon shape with a little water to stick the dough together. I cooked them on 375º F for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. I serve them with Kikkoman Sweet & Sour Sauce (go easy – it’s high sugar – but so yummy). Really you may not even need sauce at all – they are pretty tasty by themselves. I served this with steamed peas and sautéed mushrooms (high in zinc and vitamin C etc…) and milk.
Health benefits of fish (specifically salmon):
Fish is known for its heart health benefits and Salmon is no exception. Salmon is low in calories but packed with protein and omega-3 essential fatty acids with can help reduce inflammation and maintain a healthy immune and circulatory system. Salmon is also an excellent source of the antioxidant selenium, niacin, vitamin B12, phosphorus, magnesium and vitamin B6. Many of these B-vitamins have been know to help lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease.
