Lime, Dill and Garlic Crusted Salmon & Orange-Garlic Honey Sautéed Spinach

We really love salmon and find that Lime, Dill and Garlic pair great together.  Combined with the orange-garlic honey sautéed spinach  makes a very healthy combination.

We try to have fish in our diet at least a few times a month and each time I cook salmon, I like to try different combinations of flavours.

However, this time I was inspired by a previous salmon recipe I made, where I made a Lime & Dill Pesto.

The recipe takes very little time to prepare, marinate and cook. You basically marinate the fish and cooking doesn’t take more than fifteen minutes, et voila, a delicious recipe which is also a super healthy dish that is very light and good for your heart as well.

I have written many times about The Mediterranean Diet and have listed a lot of Healthy recipes, including salmon dishes..

Today is our wedding anniversary but on this day we also celebrate the Liberation of Athens from the Nazis (12 October, 1944).

Now, the EU and especially the Germans are back with a second occupation, this time economic and are quickly leading the Greek people to poverty by imposing austere measures which are beyond any imagination: 30% decrease in salaries and pensions, imposing of taxes, more taxes and more  to come.

With lower revenue and a stagnating economy, how will Greece begin to grow again?

I don’t know for how long we can afford to eat expensive food, such as salmon, but as long as we can afford it, we will try to enjoy it as often as we can.

I like this recipe, especially because one of the ingredients is honey. The benefits of healthy eating can be exciting, help us lose or maintain our weight and really make us feel happier. Honey Recipes will make your mouth water just as mine does when inventing more dishes to tempt my family.
