Mediterranean Salmon Baked In Parchment (En Papillote)

Sunday is our market day in Los Angeles, and the inspiration for this Mediterranean salmon baked in parchment recipe. Strolling to the farmers market on Sundays is my incentive to wake up a littler earlier in anticipation of what the week’s harvest will bring. Right now, summer is swinging into high gear and all the farmers tents are stocked with plenty of squash, heirloom tomatoes, stone fruits, and eggplants are just beginning to arrive. It’s my favorite time of year with so much available.

Greek Salmon Cakes

If you’re like me and can’t pass up a good crab cake, these salmon cakes are the perfect dish for you. Sometimes good crab is hard to find, which is why using fresh, wild salmon in this recipe is so easy. It also is a great source of healthy omega 3s, B vitamins, and potassium.

This Southwestern Spiced Chicken Soup recipe is delicious and satisfying. It’s based off tortilla soup, but bumps up the flavors and vegetables in the soup instead of using tortillas as a filler to create a healthier outcome.
