Heart Healthy Salmon & Scallop, Two Ways

Grilled Salmon and Scallop, Lemon Orange Basil Sauce
Steamed Asparagus
Brown Rice, Dill Tofu Sauce

Steamed Salmon & Scallop
Roasted Red Pepper Eggplant Coulis
Brown Rice, Asparagus Spears with Dijon Shallot Vinaigrette
In addition to Wild Salmon, Cannellini Bean Basil Broth here are two more Heart Healthy dishes.
The first photograph may look rich, however the sauce on the fish is fresh lemon and orange juices whisked with some extra virgin olive oil and fresh chiffonade of basil. The creamy brown rice sauce is made from tofu blended with fresh dill, Bragg Liquid Aminos, tamari, and spices. This is a delicious savory sauce – great on rice, vegetables, chicken or fish. I’m happy to provide a detailed recipe upon request.
In the second photo the fish is cooked in a Bamboo Steamer Basket, served with a coulis made from roasted red pepper, eggplant, chile and spices. The cholesterol lowering brown rice molded in the center is topped with the folate-rich asparagus spears that were dipped in the dijon vinaigrette.
If you are imbibing red wine for your heart, try pairing a fruity Pinot Noir with the steamed dish and perhaps a Zinfandel with the grilled one.
