Apricot Glazed Salmon

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1/4 cup apricot jam

2 tsp low sodium soy sauce

4- 5oz salmon fillets

1/4 cup chopped scallion

salt & pepper

 

Instructions:

Set the oven to broil and position rack to the lowest level, a good distance below the fire, if possible. Line baking sheet with foil and set aside. In small bowel, make the glaze by mixing jam with the soy sauce. Place the fillets on the foil-lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Use pastry bush or spoon to thinly coat top of each fillet with glaze. Place in broiler for about 6 minutes until the top is slightly browned, and the center is slightly  translucent. Add a bit more glaze to fillets before serving. Add chopped scallion for added flavor and pop of color!

Cheesy Zucchini Chips

Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 large zucchini

1 tbsp of olive oil

2 tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese

Sea Salt

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper. Slice zucchini very thin (use a mandolin to help) and then place slices on paper towels to squeeze out excess water. This will help them cook faster.

 Line slices of baking sheet but don’t overlap. Use a pastry brush or a paper towel to soak up olive oil and then spread lightly on each piece of zucchini. Sprinkle salt and Parmesan cheese on top and bake for 2+ hours until texture is crisp, not soggy. Serve with your favorite greek yogurt dip, salsa, or guacamole. Let extra servings cool and store in airtight container for about 3 days.
