It's time to get that grill fired up, it’s Salmon season! Salmon floods the rivers here in the PNW with abundance. I think it’s a great asset to know what is abundant in your region and harness its freshness when it is in season.
The delicious sweetness of Salmon makes it one of my favorite fish to enjoy this time of year. You can pair it with so many dishes. Make it savory or sweet. In this recipe, I will be pairing Salmon with our Balancing Chaste Berry Spice Blend for a delicious savory lettuce wrap. Here at The Herb Shoppe, we are celebrating feminine souls. Our Balancing Chaste Berry Spice Blend was crafted to bring balance when you need it most.
Chaste Berries shine in this tangy and peppery all-purpose culinary blend designed to bring a sense of balance when you need it most. Chaste Berries have been widely used to help support hormones and reduce common symptoms associated with hormone imbalance. Combined with mineral-rich Nettle Leaf, zesty Pink Peppercorns and Lemongrass, this blend adds a ton of flavor without any salt! Ginger adds an added benefit of settling the stomach, and floral Basil rounds out the blend.
All of these recipes have been created as healthy alternatives to add to your favorite dish list. Just a simple reminder that food is medicine. What we put into our bodies is what we get out of them.
